KEARNEY, Neb. — Bail has been set at $500,000 for a Kearney man accused of threatening two family members with knives Sunday night.
Trenton S. Nielsen, 32, is charged in Buffalo County Court with two counts of using a deadly weapon to commit a felony, two counts of felony terroristic threats and two counts of felony false imprisonment after a three-hour standoff with police.
Judge Graten Beavers set Nielsen's bail Monday afternoon. Nilesen must pay 10 percent — $50,000 — to be freed. He was also ordered to have no contact with the alleged victims.
Police had been called to a southeast Kearney home about 6 p.m. Sunday after a couple reported being held against their will by a family member. After a standoff, police took Nielsen into custody at 9 p.m.
