Chinle man gets 25 years for rape
By Kathy Helms
WINDOW ROCK — A Chinle man was sentenced Monday in Phoenix to 25 years in prison for raping his then-girlfriend and another female, and biting off his girlfriend’s fingertip so she would have something to remember him by.
Ramaris Paul Anagal, 32, was found guilty by a federal grand jury on Sept. 15, 2005, of three counts of aggravated sexual assault and one count of assault resulting in serious bodily injury. He was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Roger G. Strand in the Feb. 7, 2003, incident.
According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Anagal and two females were traveling from Flagstaff to Leupp when he beat the female companion, and after stopping along the road, raped her while forcing her to perform sex acts on his girlfriend who was traveling with them.
Anagal pretended to have a gun during the ordeal, and both victims testified that Anagal told his girlfriend to shoot the other female. The girlfriend testified she knew there was no gun but pretended to have one because she was afraid of Anagal.
During a stop near Leupp, the female companion was able to escape and reported the beating and sexual assault to police the next day.
Anagal and his girlfriend, meanwhile, had continued on to Birdsprings where they spent the night at her family home. The next day they drove to Winslow, where Anagal became enraged, beating and choking his girlfriend with a seatbelt.
When they returned to the Navajo Reservation, Anagal stopped the vehicle and forced her to perform another sex act with him before driving her to her aunt’s home.
Once there, Anagal again became angry, beat his girlfriend, choked her and bit her on the chin, ear and hands. He forced her to put her finger in his mouth and then bit off her fingertip, stating he was leaving her something to remember him by, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
The girlfriend managed to get away and ran to her aunt’s home where police were called. She suffered a broken nose and had to have surgery on her finger. The case was investigated by the Navajo Nation Department of Public Safety and the FBI.

Please read Sarah Deer’s amazing article at link above! Sarah Deer should be applauded for her work in this important cause:
"an ever-increasing epidemic against Native women and girls." Deer also brings up questions of Sovereignty, who should have jurisdiction, should tribes hamdle their own affairs, and the FACT THAT ONE IN THREE NATIVE WOMEN (1 IN 3) WILL BE RAPED IN THEIR LIFETIME; a CONSERVATIVE ESTIMATE!
(Amnesty International has a report on " 1 in 3 Native Women Raped" I will post that elsewhere here)
Jilleda was RAPED by this monster and now SHE’S ???? Dead? Also WHEN did she "testify" as she went MISSING In March, 2006. Who else had MOTIVE to kill her?
By ALL accounts, Jilleda was good person who was loved by all who knew her. No criminal record, none. WHO would benefit from her death? Was it Revenge?
The above is what Ramaris Anagal did to Jill, Jilleda Jay John, and now she’s dead… Don’t you think her young son and family, friends deserve to have JUSTICE in this case?
And, there is so much more to tell you…
