COLUMBUS, Neb.-- A Columbus teen convicted of attempted assault could see his sentencing postponed while he faces a second-degree murder charge for the stabbing death of his grandmother.
Nineteen-year-old Chase Micklevitz is charged with second-degree murder and use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony in the death of 58-year-old Deanna Micklevitz.
Chase Micklevitz waved his preliminary hearing on Wednesday. Micklevitz is scheduled to appear in District Court on Aug. 20, 2014.
A Friday sentencing hearing is set for Micklevitz's assault case.
His public defender, Nathan Sohriakoff, says he will file a motion to postpone the sentencing until both cases are resolved.
Chase Micklevitz pleaded guilty to attempted assault by a confined person in connection with the March 15 incident at the county jail. He was accused of assaulting two corrections officers.
