Chase Micklevitz stood silently at an arraignment hearing Wednesday in Platte Country District Court, so a plea of not guilty was entered. His trial on charges of second-degree murder and use of a deadly weapon is set to begin Jan. 5.
Police say he stabbed 58-year-old Deanna Micklevitz four times on July 30 with a kitchen knife at her home. She was taken to Columbus Community Hospital and then flown to a Lincoln hospital, where she was pronounced dead upon her arrival.
