GIBBON, Neb. (AP) - A 35-year-old man accused in a fatal shooting outside a meatpacking plant in south-central Nebraska has changed his plea.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1E2G287 ) Angelo Bol, of Grand Island, entered a no-contest plea Friday to first-degree murder in the shooting death of 34-year-old Karel Perez-Almaguer on Dec. 15 in the parking lot of Gibbon Packing in Gibbon. He originally pleaded not guilty to the charge and a weapons count in February.

Bol’s new plea means he admits no guilt for the crimes but chose not to take the case to trial.

Prosecutors allege the two knew each other, and investigators say Bol targeted Perez-Almaguer.

A sentencing hearing is scheduled for June 26. A message left with Bol’s attorney Monday seeking comment on his client’s change of plea went unreturned.
