Ute member pleads guilty to manslaughter in shooting death


A member of the Ute Indian Tribe has pleaded guilty to killing another member on the Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation in northeastern Utah.

Grant Hurbert Checora pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court to voluntary manslaughter in the shooting death of a man identified in documents only as E.C. In a plea agreement, Checora admitted that he "acted recklessly with extreme disregard for human life by killing E.C. while in a sudden quarrel." The agreement calls for a five-year prison sentence.

Checora was first charged with second-degree murder, attempted murder and two counts of use of a firearm during a violent crime. Details were scarce but he also allegedly wounded another man on June 11, 2014 in Fort Duchesne.
