GERING, Neb. (AP) - A Scottsbluff man has pleaded no contest to manslaughter in the stomping death of another man.

Scottsbluff radio station KNEB says (https://bit.ly/1ScDIm3 ) 33-year-old Chris Murillo entered the plea Friday in an agreement with prosecutors. By entering a no contest plea, Murillo does not admit guilt, but acknowledges that prosecutors have enough evidence to convict him.

Murillo had earlier pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder and assault in the Nov. 29 death of 36-year-old Abraham Crane of Scottsbluff. Prosecutors say Crane died 13 days after he was severely beaten and kicked and found in an alley.

Murillo will remain in the Scotts Bluff County Jail until his sentencing.
