(Neb.)-Court Documents Indicate Prisoner Lured Guard Into Cell Prior To Alleged Attack
(Gering)- Court documents indicate 15 year old Dylan Cardeilhac lured Scotts Bluff County corrections officer Amanda Baker into his cell as part of a planned attack last Friday. According to KNEB in Scottsbluff, fhe teen, who was awaiting trial for the armed robbery of a Mitchell convenience store, will make his first court appearance this afternoon (Tuesday) on a charge of first degree murder.
The arrest affidavit filed in Scotts Bluff County Court by Sheriff's investigator Matt Holcomb says video from a camera in the cell shows Cardeilhac had talked Baker into coming into the cell to look at something on the floor. The documents say the video shows as Baker's back was turned to Cardeilhac, he jumped on her back and wrapped both arms around her back and neck. The two fell to the ground and even though Baker tried to resist, she loses consciousness. The video shows Cardeilhac continued to apply pressure for around ninety seconds after Baker had gone limp, the entire attack lasting a little over two and a half minutes.
The documents say after the attack Cardeilhac got the facility keys off Baker's belt, left the room, and opened and entered a number of cells that housed other juvenile offenders in the facility. A short time after the attack he was located in another cell and relocated to a secure cell by corrections officer Mark Botzki, who noticed a number of open doors to cells and saw things were not as usual.
The documents say Botzki stated Baker was unconscious and breathing when he got to the cell. Another corrections officer Leo Ysac gave CPR to Baker while Botzi was rounding up Cardeilhac prior to an ambulance responding and taking over medical care.
Cardeilhac, who was arrested at 1 a.m., has been separated from the rest of the population at the county's detention center following the alleged attack on Friday.
