Salt Lake City (AP) - A mother and daughter have pleaded guilty to several felony charges stemming from a sweeping federal investigation into the theft and illegal trafficking of American Indian artifacts.

Jeanne Redd, 59, pleaded guilty Monday to seven federal counts of theft of government property, theft of tribal property and trafficking in stolen artifacts. Her 37-year-old daughter, Jerrica Redd pleaded guilty to three similar counts.

The items were stolen from the Four Ccorners region, which includes Utah, New Mexico, Colorado and Arizona.

As part of a plea agreement, prosecutors say they will recommend a lesser sentence for the pair. Sentencing for both is set for Sept. 16. Both women declined comment as they left the federal courthouse Monday in Salt Lake City.
