Canadian man appeals conviction in ‘75 slaying of fellow American Indian Movement activist

The Washington Post on March 19, 2012 released the following:

“SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — A Canadian man convicted in the 1975 killing of a fellow American Indian Movement activist says the government should not have been allowed to move his case from federal to state court after his extradition to the U.S.

John Graham’s attorney, John Murphy, told the South Dakota Supreme Court on Monday that he didn’t have sufficient time before trial to question the court’s decision to allow Graham’s case to be moved. Murphy also contends several witness statements shouldn’t have been allowed.

Graham is appealing his 2010 conviction in the slaying of Annie Mae Aquash. Prosecutors say Graham and two other AIM activists killed Aquash because they thought she was a government informant.

Attorney General Marty Jackley says there wasn’t anything wrong with moving the case or with the witness testimony.”
