TECUMSEH, Neb. (AP) -- A 33-year-old Kansas slaying suspect has been convicted of five felony charges stemming from a shot-filled police chase in southeast Nebraska.
Johnson County court records say Michael Engstrom pleaded no contest on Monday to intentionally or knowingly attempting to cause serious injury by firing at five officers while fleeing from a robbery in neighboring Pawnee County. He also pleaded no contest to two Pawnee County charges.
Prosecutors dropped 16 other felony charges in exchange for Engstrom's pleas. His sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 13.
Kansas authorities say Engstrom and his wife, Jamie, are suspected of killing a Topeka man and wounding a woman on the afternoon of Feb. 13 before fleeing north into Nebraska. Jamie Engstrom has been given five years in a Nebraska prison.
