Man sentenced to 15 years in prison for reservation killing


PHOENIX (AP) — A Laveen man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for the 2012 killing of another member of the Gila River Indian Community.

A federal judge in Phoenix sentenced 38-year-old Royce Allen Young last week on his previous guilty plea to second-degree murder in the shooting death of 24-year-old Daniel Paul Ballestero.

The victim's body was found on the tribe's reservation on Aug. 20, 2012.
