Document says inmate gave advice on fatal attack of corrections officer

Guy Eagle Elk

Documents filed in Scotts Bluff County Court Thursday say a teenage inmate charged with aiding and abetting the planned assault of Scotts Bluff County corrections officer Amanda Baker advised 15 year old inmate Dylan Cardeilhac how to strangle Baker. The arrest affidavit by Nebraska State Patrol investigator Stacie Lundgren says several juvenile inmates knew of Cardeilhac's desire to escape. The affidavit says 16 year old Guy Eagle Elk's conversations with Cardeilhac specifically dealt with targeting Baker and choking her.

The document says Eagle Elk told Cardeilhac how long to squeeze the victim until she would pass out and how to administer the choke hold around the neck of the intended victim. Eagle Elk also advised that Cardeilhac not attempt the choke hold face to face but from behind her. Cardeilhac is seen in the video in his cell moving behind Baker as he prepared to administer the choke hold that caused the victim's death.

Eagle Elk remains in the Scotts Bluff County Detention Center pending his first court appearance on the new charge. Cardeilhac, who lured Baker into his cell last Friday morning, is being held without bond after being charged with first degree murder in her death.
