PINE RIDGE, S.D. (AP) - Six Pine Ridge men have been indicted on second-degree murder charges for the death of a 30-year-old man.

The office of U.S. Attorney Randy Seiler says a federal grand jury has indicted the six men for the death of Ferris Brings Plenty.

Authorities allege the men killed Brings Plenty with a machete, a stick, a bat and a cinder block on July 12, 2015.

The men indicted are: Steven Steele; Terry Goings; Jerome Warrior; Calmer Cottier; Albert Cottier; and William Bluebird.

All six were all indicted on Jan. 26 and have all pleaded not guilty.

Each man faces up to life in prison if convicted.

Authorities say 27-year-old Josann Winters has also been indicted on one count of false statement or representation in the case.
