SPOKANE - A second man has been convicted of murder in a fatal shooting on the Spokane Indian Reservation.

U.S. District Judge Edward F. Shea Thursday sentenced 25-year-old Joey Jake Moses to 35 years in prison in a plea agreement that spared Moses a life term. Moses was given 25 years for first-degree murder and an additional mandatory 10 years for using a firearm to commit the murder.

A co-defendant, 31-year-old Norman Ford Jr. of Wellpinit, was convicted last month of first-degree murder and burglary and remains in custody pending sentencing in June.
