Lander, WY (AP) - Two people have been arrested in Wyoming and South Dakota on charges of killing a single mother on a southeastern Montana Indian reservation.

The Billings Gazette reported Friday 35-year-old Garrett Sidney Wadda faces charges of first-degree murder and sexual abuse, and 41-year-old Eugenia Ann Rowland faces a second-degree murder charge.

An indictment in Billings federal court accuses them of killing a person identified as H.H. on July 4 near Lame Deer.

Twenty-one-year-old Hanna Harris disappeared that day. Her body was found on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation.

Wadda appeared in court in Lander, Wyo., on Thursday and Rowland appeared in court in Rapid City, S.D., the same day. Both face extradition to Montana.

Officials at jails in Lander and Rapid City said they didn't know whether the suspects had lawyers.
