Second teenage inmate arrested in NE jail strangulation


Two teens have been charged as adults in the Valentine's Day strangulation of a 24-year-old guard in a western Nebraska jail.
Scotts Bluff County Attorney Doug Warner says 16-year-old Guy Eagle Elk of Lisco, Nebraska has been charged as an adult with felony aiding and abetting assault.
On Wednesday, 15-year-old Dylan Cardeilhac, of Torrington, Wyoming was charged as an adult with first-degree murder in the death of Amanda Baker.
Security video shows that Cardeilhac talked Baker into checking something on his cell floor on Friday, then pounced on the guard when she turned her back.
Authorities say the video shows Baker was strangled for more than 2 1/2 minutes.
Baker was taken to a local hospital, where she later died.
