Montana killer freed years after conviction determined not to be 'crime of violence'


August 27, 2018

BILLINGS, Mont. – A U.S. judge ordered a convicted killer from Montana's Crow Indian Reservation released from prison on Thursday after part of his conviction was overturned for not meeting the definition of a violent crime.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Lori Harper Suek wept as she told the court, including the victim's three daughters, that she had no legal basis to ask to keep Quinton Birdinground Jr. behind bars.
