Federal prosecutors said 30-year-old Tre C. James was taken into custody last week on suspicion of first-degree murder and multiple counts of domestic violence. Roberta McVickers, an attorney for James, declined to comment Monday when reached by The Associated Press. Prosecutors said James is accused of fatally shooting Jamie Yazzie of Pinon.
