GERING, Neb. (AP) A judge has set bail at $500,000 for a 16-year-old inmate charged with aiding and abetting in the strangulation of a Scotts Bluff County jail guard.

Officials say Guy Eagle Elk of Lisco is charge as an adult in the case. He would have to pay $50,000, or 10 percent of the bail, to be released from jail.

Investigators say 15-year-old Dylan Cardeilhac lured 24-year-old Amanda Baker into his cell on February 14th, then choked her before taking her keys in an attempt to escape. Police say Eagle Elk advised Cardeilhac on how to choke the guard.
