OGALLALA, Neb. — A Brighton man has been accused of fatally beating a man in western Nebraska during a fight over the July Fourth holiday.

Keith County Court records say 42-year-old Timothy Walker is charged with felony manslaughter.

His attorney didn’t immediately return a call Wednesday. Walker’s next court hearing is scheduled for July 22.

Authorities say Walker and 31-year-old Justin Borowski got into a fight the night of July Fourth at a home north of Lake McConaughy.

An arrest affidavit says Walker accused Borowski of stealing his prescription medication.

Borowski later was diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury. The affidavit says Borowski died Friday at a Kearney hospital. He lived in Grant, Nebraska.
