A 40-year-old man arrested in connection with the April stabbing death of 17-year-old Elijah Walsh was released from Sarpy County Jail late last week after posting bond.
On Friday, following a warrant being issued from his arrest, Luis Valadez was issued a $100,000 bond with a 10-percent option after appearing in Sarpy County Court. Paying $10,000, the defendant was released. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on Aug. 18 in county court.
Valadez has been charged with manslaughter, a Class IIA felony, punishable by up to 20 years imprisonment; and using a deadly weapon to commit a felony, a Class II felony, punishable by up to 50 years imprisonment, according to information provided by Chief Deputy County Attorney Bonnie Moore.
The incident took place just after 1 a.m. April 22 the 5000 block of Glasgow Avenue in Bellevue, according to information provided by Sarpy County Communications Manager Megan Stubenhofer-Barrett.
Valadez allegedly confronted Walsh and stabbed the teen, who was inside a vehicle. Walsh then reportedly drove the vehicle and crashed into a house several blocks away.
