HELENA, Mont. (AP) - Authorities say a person is in custody but has not been charged in a slaying on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation.

Fort Peck supervisory criminal investigator Ken Trottier Jr. tells the Great Falls Tribune (https://gftrib.com/2agtxTg ) that tribal and FBI officials are investigating a death in Poplar early Friday as a murder case.

He declined further comment.

U.S. Attorney’s Office spokeswoman Melissa Hornbein declined to identify the victim or the person who has been detained until charges are filed.
