March 7, 2019

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) — A 16-year-old Nebraska boy has been charged with murder, accused of killing a man in western Iowa’s Council Bluffs.

Court records say the Omaha boy was 15 when 38-year-old Adam Angeroth was slain. Angeroth’s body was found in his apartment on Jan. 24. Details about his death haven’t been released.

It’s not yet clear whether the boy will be tried as an adult. The Associated Press generally doesn’t name juveniles accused of crimes.

The boy’s preliminary hearing is scheduled for Monday.

Warrants also have been issued for a 21-year-old Omaha, Nebraska, man, Liam Stec, and 20-year-old Nicholas Haner, of Harlan, Iowa. Police are still looking for Haner. Stec remains in the Omaha jail awaiting prosecution in an unrelated Nebraska case.
