UPDATED: Man accused of killing Douglas couple appears in court
A man wanted for the murder of a Otoe County couple faced a judge for the first time Thursday.
Brindar Jangir, 36, is accused of killing Randall and Annette Grimes in their Douglas, Nebraska home on March 23.
The couple were the parents of Jangir’s ex-girlfriend, according to court documents.
After the crime, Jangir fled to Mexico. He was arrested trying to cross back into the United States at a border crossing in California.
The Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office said Jangir was extradited back to Nebraska Wednesday night.
A Lancaster County judge set his bond at $250,000 for one count of possession of a stolen firearm.
Jangir faces two counts of first-degree murder in Otoe County. LSO says after his arraignment in Lancaster County, Jangir will be transferred to Nebraska City where the Nebraska Attorney General’s office will take over the case.
