Shiprock Man Faces Murder Charge

The FBI has arrested Larry June, 57, of Shiprock, New Mexico, who is charged in a federal criminal complaint with murder and crimes occurring in Indian Country.

June was taken into custody Tuesday. He is expected to have an initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge B. Paul Briones in Farmington on Wednesday.

The charges are in connection with an investigation by the FBI and Navajo Nation Division of Public Safety into the death of a Navajo woman that occurred in Sheep Springs, New Mexico, on Friday.

The federal criminal complaint is expected to be posted in PACER shortly after June’s court appearance.

A criminal complaint is only an allegation. The accused is presumed innocent unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
