NELIGH, Neb. (AP) — A northeast Nebraska man accused of killing his ex-girlfriend and her new husband has pleaded not guilty.
The pleas were entered Wednesday for Matthew Hinrichsen, 33, in Antelope County District Court.
Hinrichsen has been charged with arson, two weapons counts and two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Victoria Lee, 25, and her husband, Alex Vargas, 30.
Investigators found the couple’s bodies Dec 8 in a burned mobile home near Ewing. Authorities said the couple were shot before the mobile home was set afire.
