A mental health evaluation has been scheduled for a 15-year-old boy charged with killing a Scotts Bluff County, Nebraska jail guard. Dylan Cardeilhac will be brought to Papillion for the screening later this month.

The Torrington, Wyoming teen has pleaded not guilty to a murder charge in the slaying of 24-year-old Amanda Baker on February 14th. Authorities say he lured Baker into his jail cell and then pounced on her, strangling her from behind.
