Skinner is also charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Skinner simply waived his right to a preliminary hearing and his case was bound over to district court. His bond was reduced to $35,000.

The other two suspects, Dawn Herweh and Martin White, requested a preliminary hearing.

Dawn Herweh is charged with two felony counts of forced entrance burglary. Attorney Kent Florom told the judge that his client requested a hearing.

The third suspect, Martin White, appeared with defense attorney Martin Troshynski. White is also charged with two felonies -- forced entrance burglary and being a felon in possession of a firearm. 

Troshynski advised White to request a contested hearing. White agreed and Troshynski asked that his hearing be held with co-defendant Herweh.

County attorney Jennifer Wellan Clements had no objections, since both cases relate to the same incident.

Lincoln County Judge Kent Turnbull set a July 10 date for the hearings.

 

Collins

In other court action Thursday, Evan Collins got some bad news when he appeared to face charges of felony assault and driving under suspension, a misdemeanor.

"Don't try to leave the courtroom there is a probation violation warrant on you," Lincoln County Judge Kent Turnbull told him.

Collins appeared to be shocked. When he took his seat, he buried his face in his hands, shaking his head in disbelief. Defense Attorney Blaine Gillette advised him to waive his rights to preliminary hearings on the two charges and said he would schedule them to coincide with the added charge.

Collins complained that he was not previously told about the probation violation charge when he met with Gillette, and Gillette told him that was because it wasn't filed until Thursday. The case was continued and Collins was escorted to jail, where he is held without bond on the probation violation charge.

 

Johnson

Travis Johnson, represented by Gillett, faced a felony charges of violating a protection order. 

Gillett told the court that Johnson would waive his right to a hearing. He also asked for a bond reduction for his client. 

Turnbull told Johnson that even if he waived his right to the hearing, it would not guarantee a bond reduction.

"This is your second offense, so I won't guarantee your bond will be reduced," Turnbull said. Johnson said he understood and waived the hearing. His case was bound over to district court.

Turnbull did not reduce bond. Johnson is held on three counts of violating a protection order. He is held without bond for one of the counts, a $12,500 bond on one count and $10,000 on the third count, according to sheriff's records.
