Arizona man sentenced in fatal stabbing of teen

TUCSON, Ariz. — A Sells man has been sentenced to 15 years in federal
prison for a 2009 fatal stabbing on the Tohono O’odham reservation in southern

Prosecutors said Jalen Michael Montana, 36, was convicted of killing Otis
Wilson at a New Year’s Eve dance on the reservation.

They said Montana and the 17-year-old victim were members of rival gangs.

Authorities said that Montana and Wilson had a brief confrontation earlier in
the night and that Montana later approached Wilson on the dance floor and
stabbed him twice in the chest.

Montana fled and was arrested in May 2011. He pleaded guilty to one count of
voluntary manslaughter last September.
