Pine Ridge man sentenced for burning down ex-partner's trailer


A member of the Oglala Sioux Tribe who burned down his ex-girlfriend's trailer was sentenced to 57 months in federal prison last week as the victim's family continues to await justice for her death.

Relatives of Jessie Waters, whose home was destroyed by the December 2014 fire, spoke at the sentencing of Duane Benson, according to minutes from the April 21 hearing. They believe he knows something about the death of the young mother, who passed away on April 30, 2015.
