A rural Long Pine man has been charged with 2nd Degree Murder and Terroristic Threats in the May 22, 2019 shooting death of 18-year-old Logan Maring of Merna. Twenty-seven-year-old(27) Nathan Yankowski was arraigned on the charges in Brown County Court Wednesday morning. Yankowski lives in the residence where the incident occurred. Maring was a recent graduate of Anselmo-Merna High School.

Brown County Sheriff Bruce Papstein says his agency received a call around 4:56pm on May 22nd about a person suffering a gun shot wound. The Sheriff’s Office and Brown County Ambulance responded and shortly after arriving Maring was pronounced dead at the scene. A report prepared by the Sheriff’s Office indicates Yankowski was pointing a handgun and believed it was unloaded. The Nebraska State Patrol is assisting in the investigation. Yankowski has since been released on $10,000 cash bond. Yankowski is scheduled for preliminary hearing on July 17, 2019 at 1:30pm.   The case is being prosecuted by Brown County Attorney Joseph Taylor. Gothenburg attorney Chevas Shaw is representing Yankowski.
