Strangling Death of Guard 'Unintentional' According to Defense

Posted: Updated:

There are new developments in the story regarding the death of a Scott's Bluff County jail guard.

The death was not intentional according to a defense lawyer for the teen charged in the guard's death.

He told a judge 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 and that the intent was not to kill.

Eagle Elk is charged with aiding and abetting in the death of 24-year-old Amanda Baker. Cardeilhac is charged with first-degree murder.

According to authorities, Cardeilhac lured Baker into his cell and strangled her.
