A federal grand jury returned an indictment against two people Tuesday for allegedly murdering a 21-year-old man on the Red Lake Indian Reservation.
Prosecutors charged Kelly James Maxwell, a 27-year-old Redby man, and Natalie Renee Delores Ann Smith, 22, of Redby, with one count of second-degree murder.
The indictment alleges that Maxwell and Smith killed Curtis Leslie Charles Heinonen on Oct. 1.
Heinonen was found naked under several logs in the yard of a Redby residence, according to an FBI affidavit. Officers discovered shoes, pants, and boxer shorts in Smith's yard two blocks away.
If convicted Maxwell and Smith face a potential maximum sentence of life in prison.
