OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A man charged in the death of a teenager at an Omaha motel is now facing a second-degree murder charge, police said Friday.

Mason Beaverson, 20, originally faced a manslaughter charge in the Sept. 4 death of of 17-year-old Evan Latto at a Motel 6.

Police say witnesses told investigators Beaverson pulled a gun from his waistband and shot Latto.

Also on Friday, police booked 18-year-old Trinity Hendrickson into jail on a possible tampering with evidence charge in the case.
