CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - The third and final defendant charged in a fatal stabbing on the Wind River Indian Reservation has pleaded guilty to first-degree murder.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1frZrLv ) that Jaymes Whiteplume is scheduled for sentencing on Sept. 1 following his plea agreement with prosecutors.

He and two other people - Susan Chippewa and Byron Spoonhunter - were charged with first-degree murder.

Prosecutors say Whiteplume held Jared Little Whiteman down while Chippewa and Spoonhunter stabbed him.

Chippewa pleaded guilty in April to first-degree murder and is set to be sentenced July 21. Spoonhunter pleaded guilty earlier this month and is scheduled for sentencing Aug. 25.
