Two men and a woman have been sentenced for their roles in the 2011 murder of a couple in the Red Lake Indian Reservation, the U.S. Department of Justice said Friday.
David John Martin, 46, Columbia Heights, Minn., received 160 months in prison and Kevin John Needham, 21, Red Lake, Minn., received 90 months. Each was sentenced Friday on one count of robbery.
Terin Rene Stately, 25, Red Lake, received 40 months on Thursday on one count of aiding and abetting robbery.
Their co-defendant, Geshik-O-Binese Martin, 30, Red Lake, was sentenced in June to life in prison on two counts of murder in the first degree, two counts of murder in the second degree and one count of robbery.
Craig David Roy and Darla Ann Beaulieu were killed and money and cocaine stolen from Roy’s home on New Year’s Day 2011. Their bodies were found in the burnt out home the same day, and autopsies determined they had been stabbed to death first.
Needham and Stately admitted in their separate plea deals that they traveled with the others to Roy’s home to rob the couple. The Martins went to trial and were convicted.
