Standing Rock Sioux Chairman Charles Murphy remains the tribe’s leader after a seven-hour Tribal Council hearing on allegations that he acted improperly in making various personnel moves.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/GVga2W ) that the council voted down three allegations after the hearing in which Murphy presented witnesses. Murphy earlier had removed his executive director under pressure from the council.
