Two suspects were charged in connection with the 62-year-old’s death. One was Logan Hunts Horse, 20, of Wounded Knee, S.D. He was charged with first-degree murder and two counts of use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony. He was booked at Hall County jail.

An unnamed 16-year-old boy who allegedly participated in the attack, was charged with robbery, accessory to murder, and accessory to use of a weapon to commit a felony.

The suspects knew the victim before the robbery and attack, Nebraska TV station KNSB reported.

Scherer worked as a trainer for decades. The horses he worked with won 60 races, according to the Thoroughbred Daily News.

In 2006, Scherer worked for prominent racehorse trainer Steve Asmussen. Scherer helped to train Storm Treasure for the Kentucky Derby, the Thoroughbred Daily News added.

The suspects drove to the lot in a red Nissan Rogue with a Florida license plate. Later, the same suspects allegedly robbed a victim at a grocery store lot in Park Ridge, Ill.

Police continued to search for the suspects over the weekend.

A dozen of the suspects ran from the gambling site and forced their way into a nearby private home. Inside the private residence was a family, including children, according to San Antonio TV station KSAT.

Each of the 12 was charged with criminal trespass of a habitation, the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office announced in a statement. Four other suspects were charged with keeping a gambling place, and two other suspects had warrants pending for unspecified charges. Three were also arrested for drug violations.

He also allegedly threatened to injure a good Samaritan who attempted to assist the victim.

Police didn’t detail what led to the assault, or specify if the victim suffered injuries.

Curtis Fogg and Brendan Durant were arrested on several charges after an alleged drug deal took place last Tuesday at a room in Maine’s Oxford Casino Hotel, police said.

The two alleged drug traffickers were booked at Oxford County Jail, Maine TV station WCSH reported. Bail for each was set at $10K.

Fogg and Durant were charged with aggravated trafficking of fentanyl, aggravated trafficking of cocaine, and possession of a firearm as a prohibited person.

A third man was also in the hotel room when police arrived. It’s unclear whether he was arrested.
