Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - A Pend Oreille County man has been
indicted for illegally selling Native American artifacts, cultural
items and human remains.
Kenneth L. Milette, who lives near Newport, was indicted by a
federal grand jury following an investigation begun five years ago
by the U.S. Department of Interior. He is scheduled to appear in
court later this week.
He is accused of selling or exchanging artifacts including
projectile points, stone tools, animal parts and human remains. The
indictment alleged the thefts occurred on the Nez Perce, Coeur
d'Alene, Spokane and Blackfeet reservations and other places.
