MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Three men were sentenced Friday for their roles in a murder of a couple on the Red Lake Indian Reservation on New Year’s Day 2011.

David John Martin, 46, of Columbia Heights, was sentenced to 160 months in prison on one count of robbery. Kevin John Needham, 21, of Red Lake, was sentenced to 90 months in prison on one count of robbery. Terin Rene Stately, 25, of Red Lake, was sentenced to 40 months in prison on one count of aiding and abetting robbery.

On June 21, 2013, co-defendant Geshik-O-Binese Martin, 30, of Red Lake, was sentenced to life in prison on two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of second-degree murder, and one count of robbery.

Trial evidence proved that on Jan. 1, 2011, Craig David Roy and Darla Ann Beaulieu were killed while money and illegal drugs were stolen from Roy’s reservation residence. The couple’s bodies were found in the remains of the house, which was destroyed by fire that same day. Autopsies determined the victims died from stab wounds.
