The Bureau of Indian Affairs does not have to disclose information on any investigation of what a defense attorney says was an improper relationship between a government informant and the lead investigator in the 1975 slaying of American Indian Movement activist Annie Mae Aquash, a judge has ruled.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica Duffy also denied a request by Richard “Dickie” Marshall’s defense attorney asking that federal prosecutors provide inmate records for Arlo Looking Cloud, who was convicted in 2004 of Aquash’s death and is serving a life sentence.

Marshall, 57, and John Graham, 52, are scheduled to go on trial in U.S. District Court May 12 for the murder of Aquash, whose body was found on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in February 1976.
