2 take plea deals for slaying of man on Winnebago reservation

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) _ Two people have taken plea deals for the slaying of a man on an American Indian reservation in northeast Nebraska. Federal court records say 20-year-old Jeremiah Wolfe pleaded guilty Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Omaha to second-degree murder and his mother, 39-year-old Natasha Wolfe, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit second-degree murder. The two and Lawrencia Merrick were charged with the April 2017 strangulation of 32-year-old William Redhorn Jr. on the Winnebago Reservation. Merrick is expected to change her plea of not guilty at a hearing Thursday. The records say Jeremiah Wolfe and Merrick told investigators they came upon Redhorn outside a building he was trying to break into. Wolfe says a fight broke out and he put Redhorn in a chokehold until he quit struggling. Merrick says she also struck Redhorn.
