A South Dakota woman has been sentenced to 25 years in prison in connection with a double homicide on the Rosebud Indian Reservation. U.S. District Judge Roberto Lange has sentenced 37-year-old Crystal Red Hawk months after she pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree murder. Two St. Francis brothers, 24-year-old BillyRay McCloskey and 21-year-old Riley McCloskey, previously were sentenced in the case. Authorities say BillyRay McCloskey in December 2013 strangled, beat and stabbed two men with a screwdriver. The victims died on either Dec. 23 or Dec. 24, and their bodies were found days later. Authorities say Red Hawk witnessed the assaults and later drove the vehicle used to take the bodies into a field. The Rosebud woman is under the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
