    WA - Edwin Pooler, 45, Colville Indian Reservation, 1991



    SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - A federal judge in Spokane has rejected a plea agreement involving in a killing on the Colville Indian Reservation in 1991. U.S. District Judge Robert Whaley said Monday he could not ac cept conditions on the guilty plea by 49-year-old James Gallaher Junior. Gallaher was charged in December of 2005 with first-degree murder in the disappearance of Edwin ("Eddy") Pooler, whose remains have never been found. The charge was based on statements Gallaher made to others, and if convicted he likely would have spent the rest of his life in prison. In May, however, Gallaher pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter, which likely would have meant another four to six years in prison -- and he would have retained the right to appeal some legal issues. Sentencing was set for yesterday, but the judge called it off. Government lawyers say they're prepared to go to trial on the original charge of first-degree murder.
