A January trial has been scheduled for the 19-year-old accused of fatally stabbing his grandmother last month in the home they shared in Columbus, Nebraska.

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 January 5th.

Police say he stabbed 58-year-old Deanna Micklevitz four times on July 30th with a kitchen knife. She was taken to Columbus Community Hospital and then flown to a Lincoln hospital where she was pronounced dead.
