More documents released in sweat lodge case

PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) -- Another batch of investigative reports in the case of a motivational speaker charged with manslaughter is being released Thursday in Prescott.

James Arthur Ray has pleaded not guilty to three counts of manslaughter, stemming from the deaths of three people following a sweat lodge ceremony he led last October near Sedona.

Authorities conducted hundreds of interviews that reached into past Ray-led events, and prosecutors began releasing those records late last year.

The first and last pages of the autopsy reports for the deceased were released Tuesday.

Thursday's batch will include more than 20 documents, which could range from one page to dozens of pages each.
