LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A 22-year-old man has pleaded no contest to charges in connection to a fatal shooting in Lincoln.

Kashius Haynes, of Jonestown, Mississippi, entered the plea Monday to charges of manslaughter and use of a firearm to commit a felony. A plea deal amended a second-degree murder charge.

Haynes was accused of shooting Nathaniel Morton in March, after witnesses say there was a sudden quarrel between the men. Morton was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Authorities say Haynes killed Morton in a fight over a $20 dice bet. The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/12k5sTa ) Haynes faces six to 70 years in prison when he is sentenced in March.
