Man sentenced in Ute reservation killing; state charges on hold


FORT DUCHESNE, Uintah County — A Uintah County man who shot and killed a friend on the Uintah-Ouray Indian Reservation in June has been sentenced by a Ute Tribal Court judge to nearly three years behind bars, delaying his prosecution in an unrelated state case.

Tyrell Sowsonicut, 19, was sentenced in late October to 1,080 days in prison and a $5,000 fine for killing Sean Lawrence Checora, according to Checora's grandmother, Annette Miller.
