Federal prosecutors have been ordered to provide Richard “Dickie” Marshall and his attorney with more than 100 hours of taped conversations with witnesses connected with the 1975 slaying of Annie Mae Aquash.

Marshall and John Graham are accused of killing Aquash, whose body was found on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. All three were American Indian Movement members. Marshall and Graham face life in prison if convicted.

Marshall’s attorney, Dana Hanna, filed a motion in U.S. District Court asking that prosecutors provide copies of the interview tapes. Graham’s attorney, John Murphy, has already received copies. Hanna said prosecutors told him he could listen to the tapes at the U.S. Attorney’s Office but could not have copies.
