(Neb)-Teen To Be Tried As Adult For Ogallala Murder

By: John Axtell Posted at: 07/11/2018 09:52 AM
OGALLALA, Neb. (AP) -  The Nebraska Appeals Court says a 16-year-old boy charged with murder in Ogallala should be tried in adult court. 

       In a ruling released Tuesday, the court agreed with a Keith County judge who had denied a motion to move the case to juvenile court. The teen has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder.

     The boy was 15 when he allegedly stabbed to death 25-year-old John Fratis on March 28 of last year.

     His attorney, Maren Chaloupka of Scottsbluff, says they will be discussing whether to appeal the decision to the state Supreme Court.
