HELENA, Mont. -

Two people have been sentenced in separate cases related to an ongoing corruption investigation on the Blackfeet and other Indian reservations in Montana.
    
Federal prosecutors say 58-year-old Sandra Marie Sanderville of Browning was sentenced Thursday to 2 ½ years in prison after pleading guilty in February to theft from an Indian government receiving federal grant funds.
    
Sanderville was the director of the Blackfeet tribe's Temporary Aid to Needy Families program from 2006 to 2010. Prosecutors say she overpaid TANF recipients, who then kicked back a portion of the money to her.
    
She was ordered to pay more than $297,000 in restitution.
    
Last month, 38-year-old Shawn Augare of Browning was sentenced to nine months in prison and ordered to pay more than $6,400 in restitution after pleading guilty to bank fraud.
