NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) - The cases against a 24-year-old man accused of crimes in two separate incidents have been consolidated and sent to Lincoln County District Court for further review.

The North Platte Telegraph reports (https://bit.ly/1KmzWEt ) Jerry Kindle appeared in county court Wednesday. He was arrested April 3 on suspicion of beating and shooting another man at the Blue Spruce Motel in North Platte and partaking in an assault at a local grocery store.

Officers who were called to the motel found a 31-year-old man who’d been beaten and grazed by a bullet. During Wednesday’s preliminary hearing, police said tests determining whether the suspected weapon inflicted the man’s wounds hadn’t been conducted.

Kindle’s arraignment in district court hasn’t been scheduled. He faces charges of second-degree assault, attempted first-degree murder and three other crimes.
