GERING, Neb. (AP) — A defense lawyer says his client didn’t intend for a Scotts Bluff County jail guard to be killed or seriously injured in an attack by another teen inmate.

Attorney William Madelung told a judge Thursday that 16-year-old Guy Eagle Elk told 15-year-old Dylan Cardeilhac how to choke the guard only into unconsciousness so her jail keys could be taken.

Eagle Elk, of Lisco, Neb., is charged with aiding and abetting in the death of 24-year-old Amanda Baker on Feb. 14. Cardeilhac, of Torrington, Wyo., is charged with first-degree murder. Authorities say he lured Baker into his cell and strangled her from behind.

Both boys are charged as adults.

The judge ordered Eagle Elk’s case advanced to district court for trial. Cardeilhac is scheduled for district court arraignment on March 17.
