    MT - Koren Diebert, 26, & LaFonda Big Leggins, 23, murdered, 18 Nov 2003

    Eugene Raymond Rising Sun, 24, who is currently in prison on drug charges, has been indicted with first-degree murder. The indictment was filed on May 20, 2005, for an unspecified reason wasn't unsealed until now. If convicted he faces a mandatory life sentence and a $250,000 fine.

    His brother, Moses Kalani Rising Sun, 21, pleaded guilty last week to the charge of being an accessory after the fact.

    The indictment says Eugene Raymond Rising Sun killed LaFonda Big Leggins, 23 and Koren Nola Diebert, 26 "with malice aforethought and with premeditation'' on Nov. 18, 2003, on the Eagle Springs Road about five miles from Highway 313 on the Crow Indian Reservation.


    Both were beaten so severely, they were unrecognizable when found.

    From November 2008:

    http://billingsgazette.com/news/loca...6cde16fba.html

    U.S. District Judge Richard Cebull on Thursday sentenced Eugene Rising Sun, 25, to two life terms for the deaths of LaFonda Big Leggins, 23, and Koren Nola Diebert, 26. He ran the sentences consecutively...

    Eugene Rising Sun pleaded guilty in August to two counts of second-degree murder, which is deliberate killing with malice aforethought...

    Werner said that on the night of the murders, all five of the participants had been drinking and were intoxicated. Rising Sun was coming off of extensive daily use of meth and was paranoid and sleep-deprived, a combination that set him up "for doing something awful for no good reason," he said.
