The two 16-year-olds charged in another teenager's death have been sentenced to probation by Douglas County Juvenile Judge Christopher Kelly.
Markell Vaughn pleaded no contest to accessory in an assault, while Trevaun Ammons pleaded no contest to manslaughter.
Vaughn and Ammons got into a fight with 16-year-old Aquilee "KeKe" Muse on May 9, near 21st and Burt Streets. Muse suffered a head injury and was pronounced dead several days later.
According to court documents it was Trevaun Ammons and Aquilee Muse who were fighting. Muse lost his balance, Markell Vaughn swung at Muse and Muse fell, hitting his head on the concrete.
Defense attorney Randall Paragas said, “The fight was not over a girl. Unfortunately the information I have, it was over what you call mugging in the hallways, giving fear stares in the hallways. That, again, is the tragedy in this. That’s what this seems to stem from.”
In addition to probation, Ammons was ordered to get counseling to deal with Muse's death, as well as, perform 100 hours of community service.
Vaughn was also ordered to undergo counseling and 50 hours of community service, 25 of which will be at a cemetery, if its approved. His attorney, Stu Dornan, told WOWT 6 News Vaughn will attend school at Omaha North this fall, instead of Central where all three boys were students. Dornan said his client, "feels very remorseful about this and hopes to be able to put it behind him.”
