The pistol used to kill a Canadian woman who was an American Indian Movement activist was the same one taken from one of the two men charged with being an accessory to her murder, federal prosecutors argued in a court filing.

The attorneys have asked a judge to let them use evidence from another 1975 murder case in the upcoming trial of John Graham and Richard Marshall, who pleaded not guilty to charges they committed or aided and abetted the murder of Annie Mae Aquash later that year.

Their trial is to start May 12 in Rapid City.
