No, he shouldn't have.
Sort of joking on that one. There really was never a good time to tell them what Jenner said. Even the farm time was wrought with tension.

Rick was making many mistakes because of stress, sleep deprivation, and guilt. He does feel guilty for killing Shane and it shows in the way he told Lori and the group. That's what intrigues. There is still a soul in there though he's ready to crack. With Otis, Shane flat out lied. Rick didn't sugar coat, even when it would have benefitted him. Shane was "pushing me, pushing me." He should have emphasized more how dangerous Shane was. Shane did what he did to impress Lori and get her and Carl back. Rick always acted for the group, or at least he tried to do so.
During his Ricktatership speech, he could've mentioned that Shane killed Otis, might've swayed the farm folk. Or it might have backfired, since the only ones who'd back him up have lost faith in Rick. I can see Lori saying "We don't know that for sure."
