Fort Totten Man Indicted For Murder
FARGO – United States Attorney Christopher C. Myers announced that John Willard Greywind, age 42, was charged by an Indictment returned on March 22, 2018, for Second Degree Murder and Voluntary Manslaughter.
The Indictment alleges that on November 13, 2017, Greywind, who is enrolled in the Spirit Lake Sioux Tribe, killed Jogenia Lopez Austin, his girlfriend, and the acts occurred within Indian country, that is, within the exterior boundaries of the Spirit Lake Indian Reservation. The Indictment in this case is not evidence of guilt. The defendant is presumed innocent unless or until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt at trial.
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Bureau of Indian Affairs, and Devils Lake Police Department.
This case is being prosecuted by First Assistant U.S. Attorney Keith Reisenauer.
