BENNET, Neb. (AP) — A Lincoln man who was shot by the father of his girlfriend has been charged with domestic abuse.
Jeffery Stotler Jr. was released from a hospital on Wednesday and
arrested by Lancaster County sheriff's deputies. He was freed later.
Sheriff Terry Wagner says Stotler already was on probation for domestic assault.
county prosecutor has decided not to charge the man who shot Stotler,
50-year-old Michael Kinney. Prosecutors say Kinney was acting in
self-defense when he shot Stotler on March 20. Investigators say Stotler
kicked in the back door of Kinney's home in Bennet toward the end of a
dispute with Kinney's daughter.
A phone listing for Stotler
couldn't be found. Stotler's attorney in the previous assault case
didn't immediately return a message from The Associated Press on Friday.
