More charges added in Kimball shooting death
KIMBALL, NE — Prosecutors are now pursuing additional charges against a Kimball man who arrested after a shooting incident in the panhandle town last month.
William Serrano faces four more felony counts in the case. Last week, officials filed an amended complaint which included charges of attempted murder, two counts of attempted terroristic threats and possession of a firearm during a felony.
This is in addition to the manslaughter charge already levied against him.
The investigation launched in early January when police responded to a report of a shooting at a Kimball home. Once on scene, Serrano told police he had accidentally shot his wife, Tessa Ghering, and she was dead.
According to court documents, Serrano told investigators he was attempting to clear a break action shotgun when it fired and struck Ghering.
Serrano also attempted to have his bond reduced in the case, but the motion was denied. It remains set at $100,000.
The case has been bound to district court. Serrano will be back in court on March 1.
