Lake Death

By  | 

A Council Bluffs, Iowa, man pleads no contest to killing a wake-boarder he hit with a personal watercraft on Carter Lake.

Twenty-year-old Justin Schubert entered his plea in Douglas County District Court Monday to a charge of third-degree manslaughter.

Twenty-one-year-old David Shaffer of Bellevue died after suffering severe head injuries in the collision last August. He was struck after falling off a wake board pulled by a boat driven by his father.

Schubert's sentencing is set for July.
