NEBRASKA CITY, Neb. (AP) - A March trial has been scheduled for a 17-year-old girl who’s accused of fatally driving her pickup over a woman in the Nebraska City library parking lot.

The girl pleaded not guilty on Tuesday in Otoe County District Court to charges of murder, use of a weapon and leaving the scene of an injury accident. Her trial is set to begin on March 9. The Associated Press generally doesn’t name juveniles accused of crimes.

Prosecutors say the girl and 22-year-old Amber Shipley got into an altercation outside the library on Sept. 14 and say the girl drove toward Shipley and ran her over.

The girl’s attorney, Jerry Sena (SEE’-nuh), said Wednesday that he’s planning to file a motion in the next two weeks to move her case to juvenile court.
