HASTINGS, Nebraska — A December trial has been scheduled for a Hastings man accused of trying to kill a Hastings police officer while escaping.
Online court records say Marty Deckert has pleaded not guilty to attempted second-degree murder and other charges. His trial is set to begin Dec. 15 in Adams County District Court.
Police say that on July 25, Deckert tried to avoid arrest by speeding away in his wife's car while dragging a police officer with him. The car crashed, causing minor injuries to the officer.
Police say Deckert got away but was apprehended later in the day.
