GERING, Neb. (AP) _ A mental health evaluation has been scheduled for the 15 year old Torrington teen charged with killing Scotts Bluff County Corrections guard Amanda Baker.

Dylan Cardeilhac will be taken to the Omaha suburb of Papillion for the screening later this month.

Cardeilhac has pleaded not guilty to a first degree murder murder charge in the slaying of the 24-year-old Baker on Feb. 14. Authorities say he lured Baker into his jail cell and then pounced on her, strangling her from behind.
