NEBRASKA CITY, Neb. (AP) - A 17-year-old girl accused of running her pickup over a woman in the Nebraska City library parking lot now is charged with murder.

Otoe County Attorney David Partsch said in a news release Wednesday that the woman, 20-year-old Amber Shipley, was declared brain dead on Monday and that an autopsy showed she died of blunt force head injuries. The teenage girl also has been charged with use of a weapon and leaving the scene of an injury accident. The Associated Press generally doesn’t name juveniles accused of crimes.

Her attorney, Jerry Sena (SEE’-nuh), said Thursday that “when the facts come out my client will be found innocent.”

Partsch has said the girl and Shipley had gotten into an altercation outside the Morton-James Public Library about 5:30 p.m. on Sept. 14.
