RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) - The Riverton man convicted of the shooting of two American Indian men at a detoxification and rehabilitation facility has requested records of his public service to be used at his sentencing hearing.

Roy Clyde pleaded guilty last month in connection to killing 29-year-old Stallone Trosper and critically wounded 50-year-old James “Sonny” Goggles at a the Center of Hope facility in Riverton in July. He faces life in prison under a plea agreement that spares him the death penalty.

The Ranger of Riverton reports (https://bit.ly/1OqKPeE ) that 32-year-old Clyde’s attorneys filed a motion that indicated they wanted to use information from Clyde’s work records to show he did not discriminate about who he served.

Trosper and Goggles are members of the Northern Arapaho Tribe, which has called for a federal hate-crime investigation into the case.
