Cover-Up? NE Man Pleads Not Guilty in Assisted Suicide of Roommate (2009)

[Comment: How easy is it to drug someone you want dead, then put a bag over their head and say “he/she wanted to die I guess…. I was just there…” Cheryl. CHN]
[Ed. Comment: As noted, how do we know this isn’t premeditated murder using “assisted suicide” as a cover-up? If assisted suicide becomes accepted, how we can be sure that many murders will not be covered with this ploy?]

A 28-year-old Lincoln man accused of helping a friend commit suicide has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder.

Dallas Huston entered his plea this week in Lancaster County District Court.Huston called police Sept. 16 to tell them he found the body of his 22-year-old roommate, who had plastic wrap around his head.

Autopsy results showed the man died of asphyxiation. Toxicology reports showed he had also taken sleeping pills.

Police say Huston told others about the death and that he helped.

Huston is due back in court in February.
