Two Spirit Lake men were sentenced to federal prison Monday for their roles in the murder of Carla Yellowbird in 2016.

Daylin Takendrick St. Pierre, 21, was sentenced to 27 1/2 years in federal prison, to be followed by five years of supervised release for the offenses of Conspiracy to Commit Robbery, use of a Firearm in Relation to a Felony Crime of Violence and Felony Murder.

St. Pierre was further ordered to pay $300 to the Crime Victims’ Fund, as well as $11,659 in restitution to the victim.

Dakota James Charboneau, 24, was also sentenced to serve 50 years in federal prison, to be followed by five years of supervised release for the offenses of Second Degree Murder, Aiding and Abetting and Use of a Firearm in Relation to a Felony Crime of Violence.

On Aug. 23, 2016, Carla Yellowbird traveled to the Spirit Lake Indian Reservation with Suna Guy, who previously plead guilty to Felony Murder and was sentenced in this case. While on the Spirit Lake Reservation, Dakota Charboneau and Guy planned to rob Yellowbird of her money and belongings, and later recruited Daylin St. Pierre to do the robbery.

In the morning of Aug. 24, 2016, St. Pierre shot and killed Ms. Yellowbird while robbing her.
