Box Elder Woman Sentenced to Ten Years

(Great Falls) – A Box Elder woman who admitted to a firearms crime after fatally shooting a man while she was in his car on the Rocky Boy’s Indian Reservation, was sentenced on Wednesday to ten years in prison to be followed by five years of supervised release, US Attorney Jesse Laslovich  said.

Shaide Jo Demontiney,  19, pleaded guilty in June to use of a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence.

The government alleged in court documents that on August 16th, 2021 tribal police officers responded to a report of a shooting in Box Elder and found a deceased man. Officers learned that Demontiney had shot the man and driven away. Officers arrested Demontiney a short time later after the car she was driving broke down on the highway. Demontiney had a .380 caliber handgun and the victim’s cellphone. Demontiney told investigators she had been in the car with the victim and had grabbed a handgun from her purse after he had offered her money and drugs for sex and touched her inappropriately. After the victim made another remark, Demontiney shot him in the chest.

Chief U.S. District Judge Brian M. Morris presided and also order $3,474 in restitution.
