DAKOTA CITY, Neb. (AP) _ One of two men accused of killing another man in northeast Nebraska’s Dakota County has been sentenced to 50 to 60 years in prison.
The Sioux City Journal reports that 19-year-old Brayan Galvan-Hernandez was sentenced Tuesday for attempted murder and being an accessory in the Nov. 1, 2016, fatal shooting of 41-year-old Kraig Kubik, of Emerson.
Galvan-Hernandez pleaded no contest in October to the charges in a deal with prosecutors. Authorities say Galvan-Hernandez and 26-year-old Andres Surber, both of Wakefield, killed Kubik. Kubik’s dismembered body was found in a culvert in rural Cedar County four days after he was reported missing. Other parts of his body were found in a car trunk.
In April, a judge ruled that Surber was not mentally competent to stand trial.
