Cardeilhac to be arraigned on 1st Degree Murder charge this afternoon

Posted: Updated:

The teen accused of murdering a Corrections Officer at the Scotts Bluff County Detention Center is set to be arraigned in District Court Monday afternoon on a 1st Degree Murder charge.

15-year-old Dylan Cardeilhac is being charged in the death of 24-year-old Amanda Baker, and will be tried as an adult. 

Witnesses say that while he was being detained on a separate armed robbery charge, Cardeilhac began formulating an escape plan. That plan was enacted in the early hours of February 14th, when he allegedly lured Baker into his cell and choked her until she passed out. Cardeilhac then took her keys and opened several cells in the Juvenile block. Officers found him hiding in a cell belonging to several other inmates shortly after.

Cardeilhac will be arraigned at 1 p.m. in Scotts Bluff County District Court.
