A Kansas couple suspected in a high-speed chase and shootout with police in Nebraska now face charges.
Michael Engstrom and Jamie Russell had their first appearances in Johnson County Court on Wednesday and were denied bail. Engstrom was charged Tuesday in neighboring Pawnee County with two weapons counts and a robbery count. Russell, who also goes by the name Jamie Engstrom, was charged with robbery.
Authorities suspect Engstrom in a double shooting in Topeka, Kan., on Feb. 13 that killed 35-year-old Ricky Mitchell and wounded a woman. Police believe Engstrom robbed a convenience store in Pawnee City hours later.
Authorities say that when police later tried to stop the couple's car, Engstrom fired on officers, wounding one, and began a high-speed chase that ended when his car became stuck.
