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.

U.S. Magistrate Paul Warner on Wednesday appointed a federal defender for Manning and scheduled a Friday detention hearing for the man.

Manning's six co-defendants — including alleged triggerman Bruce Silva — are charged in 8th District Court and their cases are pending.

Silva, 23, fled to Mexico following the shooting but was later apprehended and returned to Utah to face homicide, attempted murder and aggravated assault charges.

Silva's brothers — Kevin Silva, 20; Alberto Silva, 19; and Adrian Silva, 23 — his girlfriend, Shadow M. Reed, and 19-year-old Teaunna Cesspooch all face identical charges in connection with the shootings.

Authorities allege Bruce Silva killed James Carey and wounded Hurley because of an argument over a broken car window.
