A Fort Duchesne man charged in U.S. District Court with murder in connection with a fatal June shooting on the Uintah-Ouray Indian Reservation made an initial appearance Wednesday.
Colin Rian Manning, 24, is among seven people charged in the June 18 slaying of 25-year-old James Edward Carey. Also injured in the shooting was Jared R. Hurley, 34.
Manning was indicted in November with murder in the second degree within Indian Country and aiding and abetting; use of a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence; and assault causing serious bodily injury while within Indian Country. His case is in the jurisdiction of the federal court because he is a member of the Ute Indian Tribe.
