NEBRASKA CITY, Nebraska — The attorney for a man accused of killing a Nebraska City resident says he's preparing to present a case of self-defense.
Nebraska City radio station KNCY reports (http://bit.ly/1WCpDnP ) that attorney Bill Gallup on Monday told a judge in Otoe County Court that his client, Sebastien Hall, would waive his preliminary hearing and proceed to district court. Hall is charged with second-degree murder in the July 19 stabbing death of 21-year-old Jacob Adams. Hall's next scheduled court date is Sept. 8.
Prosecutors say Adams was fighting with Hall and another man, 22-year-old Dylan Boyle, when Adams was stabbed in the chest and throat. Boyle has pleaded not guilty to an assault charge.
