  • District of Wyoming (307) 772-2124

U.S. Attorney Christopher A. Crofts announced today that on February 25, 2014, Dean Moss, a 26-year-old enrolled Northern Arapaho man from Arapahoe, Wyoming, was sentenced by United States District Judge Scott W. Skavdahl for second-degree murder. Moss received 204 months’ imprisonment, to be followed by five years of supervised release, and was ordered to pay a $100 special assessment.

The charges stemmed from the stabbing death of Dwight Spoonhunter on June 9, 2013, on the Wind River Indian Reservation.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation with substantial assistance of the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
