Timothy Big Man died later that day from a stab wound to the abdomen, Big Horn County Coroner Terry Bullis told The Gazette at the time.
FBI supervisory agent Travis Burrows said previously an 18-year-old man had been arrested in connection with Big Man's death, which the agency was investigating along with the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
Burrows and a spokesman with the U.S. Attorney's office both declined Monday to confirm whether the case was the same.
District Court Judge Susan Watters has scheduled a trial in the case for July 2018.
