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.
