November 9, 2018

KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) — Two male students have been accused of sexually assaulting a female acquaintance in a campus residence hall at the University of Nebraska at Kearney.

Buffalo County Court records say 19-year-old Prestin Melroy, of Holdrege, and 18-year-old Zachary Reikofski, of Fairbury, are charged with felony sexual assault. Court records detailing what happened were not available Friday.

Reikofski’s attorney, Charles Brewster, said Friday that Reikofski will plead not guilty. Melroy’s attorney didn’t immediately return a message from The Associated Press.

University spokesman Todd Gottula says the two students’ cases and status with the college will be reviewed by the Student Code of Conduct Team.
