Grand Island Teen Gets 40-45 Years For 2019 Murder

GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) – A Grand Island teenager has been sentenced to 40 to 45 years in prison for killing a man last year in Grand Island.

17-year old Arek Friedricksen was originally charged with 1st-degree murder in the death of 32-year old Vincent Arrellano Jr, but pleaded no contest in May to 2nd-degree murder in a plea agreement that also dropped a weapons charge.

Fredricksen was 16 when he shot Arrellano multiple times in April 2019. His attorney tried to move the case to juvenile court, but the judge refused the motion.
