OMAHA (AP) — The Nebraska Supreme Court ordered a new trial Friday for a Wyoming man sentenced to life in prison for the 2003 shooting death of a Colorado man in Nebraska, and it set a precedent requiring state courts to give defendants more time to prepare for trial in certain instances.

Vencil Ash III, 42, of Cheyenne, Wyo., was convicted last year of first-degree murder in Kimball County District Court. Ash was charged with killing Ryan Guitron, of Fort Collins, Colo., in 2003. Guitron's remains were found in 2010 at an abandoned farm near Bushnell in western Nebraska.
