United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that an Allen, South Dakota man was indicted by a federal grand jury for allegedly killing an eleven-month old boy by fracturing his skull and for abusing two other young children.

Michael Dean Dubray, 30, was indicted on June 11, 2013, for First Degree Murder and Felony Child Abuse and Neglect. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy on June 12, 2013 and pled not guilty to the indictment. The penalty upon conviction is mandatory life imprisonment and/or a $250,000 fine.

The charges are merely an accusation and Dubray is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The investigation is being conducted by the Bureau of Indian Affairs Office of Justice Services, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Oglala Sioux Tribe Department of Public Safety. Assistant U.S. Attorney Sarah B. Collins is prosecuting the case.

Dubray was released on bond pending trial. A trial date has not been set.
