MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Two Redby, Minn. men have pleaded guilty in connection to the Nov. 3, 2010 killing of one man and the wounding of two others on the Red Lake Indian Reservation.

In federal court Thursday, Donald Leigh Clark, Jr., 23, pleaded guilty to one count of discharge of a firearm during the commission of a crime of violence. Clark’s co-defendant, 23-year-old Cruze Anthony White, pleaded guilty to one count of voluntary manslaughter for aiding and abetting Clark.

According to authorities, Red Lake Tribal Police Department responded to a reported shooting and found three adult men in and around a vehicle, all with gunshot wounds. All were taken to Indian Health Services for treatment, where a man named Julian Keith DeMarrias was pronounced dead.

Clark was arrested on Jan. 15, 2011, when law enforcement found him hiding in the backseat of a vehicle under a blanket. White surrendered himself to authorities on Jan. 24, 2011.

Both men’s sentencing will be determined at a future hearing.

For their crimes, Clark faces a potential maximum sentence of life in prison, while White faces up to 15 years in prison.
