A 26-year-old Burwell man is scheduled to be in court Monday for a hearing in his manslaughter case.
Authorities suspect Joseph White was exchanging texts with his wife when his car rammed into the rear of a tractor near Westerville in south-central Nebraska's Custer County on April 30. The tractor driver died. He was identified as 55-year-old Joe Willhoit.
In court records a Nebraska state trooper says an examination of White's cellphone and cellphone records showed that just about the time of the crash, White received a text from his wife and that an unsent text to his wife was still on his phone.
