HASTINGS, Neb. — Authorities have charged three people in the September slaying of a Hastings man.

Twenty-one-year-old Daniel Harden, of Hastings, was arrested Thursday and is charged with first-degree murder and use of a firearm. Court records say 21-year-old Katherine Creigh, with a Hastings address, was arrested Friday morning in Lincoln. She’s charged with being an accessory to murder. The records also say 19-year-old Deante Mullen, of Lincoln, was charged Thursday with first-degree murder and with the use of a firearm. The records don’t list an attorney for any of them.

They’re accused of participating in the shooting death of 19-year-old Jose “Joey” Hansen. Hastings Police Chief Adam Story says Harden and Mullen intended to rob Hansen early on Sept. 11. Hansen’s body was found by a couple out for a walk.
