Ruby Montelongo last year at a leadership conference for tribal youth.

Sixteen-year-old Ruby Montelongo's accused killer is free, as the prosecution prepares to re-file charges in the case against her. The suspect is also a teenaged girl, who has been awaiting trial in juvenile hall since April 15, the day after Ruby's body was found beaten to death in a field on the Round Valley reservation.
