A southern Nebraska man has been accused of trying to kill his roommates and himself by attempting to set his house on fire.

Brad Gladwell has been charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder and one count of attempted first-degree arson. He made an initial court appearance Wednesday in Buffalo County Court.

Court records say Gladwell doused himself and his mattress with gasoline early Tuesday. His roommates smelled the gasoline and called authorities before a fire was ignited.

Gladwell remains jailed with bond set at $100,000. A hearing is scheduled for February.

The Buffalo County Public Defender's Office says an attorney has not yet been assigned to Gladwell.
