KIMBALL, NE — The man charged in the shooting death of 21-year-old Tessa Ghering in Kimball has been arraigned. 

William Serrano faces a charge of Involuntary Manslaughter for the incident that claimed the life of Ghering on Monday. 

According to court documents, police were called to the scene at 10:30 p.m. Monday. When they arrived, Serrano met police outside and told them he had accidentally shot his wife and she was dead. 

Investigators found Ghering in the house with a single gunshot wound to the head. 

Court documents say Serrano spoke with investigators at the scene. According to the arrest affidavit, Serrano told authorities he had been fighting with someone and Ghering told him about a shotgun in the garage. 

Serrano retrieved the gun and brought it into the house. Court documents say Ghering told Serrano to be careful because it was loaded. 

Serrano told police he was attempting to clear the gun and while trying to open the break-action shotgun, it fired and shot Ghering. 

His bond has been set at $100,000 and he is due back in court on Jan. 26.

Officials say this incident was the first shooting death in Kimball in nearly 20 years.
