A man who shot and killed a tribal police officer in a remote corner of the nation’s largest American Indian reservation has been sentenced to 30 years in federal prison.
In 2019, Cleveland pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, which carried a maximum penalty of life in prison. He also pleaded guilty to violating the conditions of his supervised release in a previous case in which he forced his way into a home on the Navajo Nation armed with a baseball bat and assaulted a woman in 2012.
Largo was shot while responding to a domestic violence call.
Cleveland acknowledged that he consumed alcohol that night and shot and killed Largo March 11, 2017, on a dark road with a rifle.
