10/02/08 - Technicality may derail trial of man charged in Aquash death


A federal judge said he'll decide Friday whether to dismiss charges against a man scheduled to stand trial starting Monday for the slaying of a fellow Canadian 32 years ago because of a "technical legal point." John Graham is charged with first-degree murder for the 1975 shooting death of Annie Mae Aquash on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation when both were affiliated with the American Indian Movement.
