Two men charged in a string of felonies in Buffalo County in early February have both waived their right to a preliminary hearing.
Joshua Lewis, 24, of Grand Island is charged with possession of a firearm by a felon, use of a firearm to commit a felony, felony robbery and second-degree assault. Jason Warrington, 19, of Kearney is charged with felony robbery, use of a weapon to commit a felony and accessory to a felony.
Kearney Police were dispatched to Good Samaritan Hospital on February 3 to meet with a 20-year-old man being treated for a gunshot wound to his leg. The man told officers two armed men entered his home and took property and cash from the victim, before one of them shot him in the leg.
Officers later arrested Lewis and Warrington and placed them in Buffalo County Jail.
Wednesday, a Buffalo County judge lowered Lewis' bond from 10% of $500,000 to 10% of $250,000 under a number of requirements.
Both cases will be moved to District Court.
