A North Platte man accused of stabbing another man to death has made a plea deal with prosecutors.
On Tuesday, 25-year-old Nathaniel Polanco pleaded guilty to a felony count of attempted assault.
In exchange, prosecutors reduced the charge from manslaughter and dropped a weapons charge.
His sentencing is scheduled for May 21.
Police say Polanco fatally stabbed 24-year-old Michael Fernau on Oct. 22. Fernau was stabbed at his house and died at a hospital.
Police say the two men had been arguing and that Polanco "just snapped."
