Participants in deadly sweat lodge ceremony could testify

PRESCOTT, Ariz. (WKOW) -- New details of the experiences of participants who participated in a deadly sweat lodge ceremony in Arizona.

Ray led the ceremony as part of his "Spiritual Warrior" retreat last year near Sedona. He faces manslaughter charges in the deaths of three people, including a Milwaukee man, who took part, and has pleaded not guilty.

The more than 50 people who were inside the pitch-black sweat lodge have offered wide-ranging opinions about Ray and his five-day event that culminated with the sweat lodge ceremony.

All could be called to testify during Ray's trial that's slated to begin Aug. 31. Prosecutors have identified more than two dozen others who attended past Ray-led events as potential witnesses.
