COLUMBUS, Nebraska — A 19-year-old man accused of fatally stabbing his grandmother at the home she shared with him in Columbus now has no chance of getting out of jail.

The Columbus Telegram reports (http://bit.ly/Zly3qy ) a judge decided Friday that Chase Micklevitz should be held without bond. He is facing charges of second-degree murder and using a weapon to commit a felony.

Micklevitz' lawyers had asked for the hearing because they hoped his $1 million bond might be cut in half. But instead the option of posting bond was eliminated.

Police have said he stabbed 58-year-old Deanna Micklevitz four times on July 30 with a kitchen knife. Prosecutors say Deanna Micklevitz identified her grandson as her attacker in a 911 call that day.
