German, Carter waive preliminary hearings
Just one preliminary hearing is now scheduled in Chase County Court on Friday in the Annika Swanson murder case.
Kevin German and Keonna Carter, both charged with first-degree murder and two counts of kidnapping in her death, waived their preliminary hearings on Friday.
The county court was notified of their intent to waive their hearings last Thursday. Their cases have been bound over to Chase County District Court.
On Tuesday, Russell Mann, who faces two accessory to kidnapping charges, was still scheduled for a preliminary hearing at 3 p.m. on Friday in Chase County Court before Judge Edward Steenburg.
German and Carter are being held without bond in the Lincoln County Jail in North Platte.
Mann remains in the Chase County Jail on $200,000 bond.
