AINSWORTH (AP) - A 26-year-old has been charged with second-degree murder in northern Nebraska’s Brown County.

Court records say the charge and one of terroristic threats were filed Tuesday against 26-year-old Nathan Yankowski.

Sheriff’s deputies were called May 22nd to Yankowski’s home, north of Long Pine. They found the body of 18-year-old Logan Maring, who lived in Merna.

A court document says Yankowski gave several accounts about how Maring had been shot in the head with a 22-caliber revolver before finally acknowledging that he’d been fooling around with the gun and had pointed it at Maring.

Yankowski told a deputy that his thumb slipped off the hammer of the cocked weapon and it went off.
