COLUMBUS, Neb. (AP) Bail has been set at $1 million for a 19-year-old Columbus man accused of fatally stabbing his grandmother.
According to reports, Chase Micklevitz is charged with second-degree murder in the death of 58-year-old Deanna Micklevitz. He is also charged with use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony.
