A 21-year-old Offutt Air Force Base airman accused of shooting to death a fellow airman during a “trust” game has been charged in military court.

Airman 1st Class Corey D. Hernandez of Walnut, Calif., was charged under the Uniform Code of Military Justice with unpremeditated murder while engaged in an inherently dangerous act, concealing physical evidence and furnishing false and material information to a peace officer.

The maximum punishment for all charges is life in prison, a dishonorable discharge, forfeiture of pay and allowances and reduction to the lowest enlisted grade.

Hernandez had faced charges in Sarpy County Court of manslaughter and use of a weapon to commit a felony. The charges were dismissed, and the case was transferred to the Air Force court.
