Mar. 06, 2018
RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — A Pine Ridge woman accused of driving a getaway car in a fatal shooting outside a youth center on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation has been sentenced to 15 years in federal prison.
Thirty-one-year-old Tiffanee Garnier was accused of helping the assailants of Vincent Brewer III in October 2016.
The Rapid City Journal reports that Garnier pleaded guilty to being an accessory after the slaying that authorities say was linked to a drug debt. The U.S. attorney's office says Brewer was shot more than a dozen times after playing in a basketball tournament at the center.
Three are charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy in the attack.
Garnier at one point was charged with first-degree murder, but that charge was dismissed under her plea deal with prosecutors.
