Two people have been charged with helping a man suspected of a fatal drug-related shooting in the Nebraska Panhandle.
SIDNEY, Neb. (AP) - Thirty-five-year-old Billy Fields was charged Monday with being an accessory to a felony. Cheyenne County Attorney Paul Schaub says Fields helped 33-year-old Jason Custer leave Sidney after the shooting of 36-year-old Adam McCormick. Custer was arrested at a Big Springs motel on Saturday.
Authorities have said the shooting occurred earlier Saturday when McCormick and Custer argued over $160 in drug money.
Schaub also says 38-year-old Amber Davis was charged with obstruction and false reporting. Authorities say she lied to investigators after the shooting.
Online court records don't list the attorneys for Fields, Davis or Custer.
