Cheyenne, WY (KGWN) - U.S. Attorney for the District of Wyoming Christopher A. Crofts announced today that on April15, 2014, Ardis Sierra Enos, 20, an Eastern Shoshone tribal member, appeared in federal court
on a Complaint charging her with one count of First Degree Murder.

The charge against Enos stems from her actions in the death of her newborn infant on March 26, 2014 at her home on the Wind River Reservation. Enos is facing a potential sentence of life imprisonment, and could be ordered to pay restitution, a fine and special assessment. A complaint is only an accusation. In every criminal case, the accused is presumed to be innocent until proven guilty, and the government always has the burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
