More people charged in killing on Pine Ridge Reservation

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Authorities say two more men have been charged in the killing of a man in the parking lot of a Pine Ridge Indian Reservation youth center last year.

The Rapid City Journal reports that recently unsealed court documents show that Francisco Villanueva and Adan Corona are charged in the shooting death of 29-year-old Vincent Brewer III.

Villanueva, Corona and Myles Tuttle, who was arrested last year, are charged with first-degree murder as a premeditated killing, first-degree murder in relation to kidnapping and conspiracy to commit assault.

Authorities say the suspects planned to assault and kidnap Brewer in order to collect a drug debt. Brewer was gunned down after he escaped from a vehicle.
