(Neb.) - Colorado man takes Nebraska plea deal

By: John Thayer Posted at: 04/18/2012 06:46 AM
OGALLALA, Neb. (AP) - A 41-year-old Colorado man accused of firing at law enforcement officers during a chase in western Nebraska has accepted a plea deal and will be sentenced in June.
    
Mark Phillips originally pleaded not guilty to attempted first-degree murder and attempt first-degree assault on an officer.
   
Phillips, of Louisville, Colo., pleaded no contest after prosecutors lowered the charge to two counts of first-degree assault. He's scheduled to be sentenced on June 22.
    
Prosecutors say Phillips fired at two officers in rural Keith County after fleeing a traffic stop in December. The officers fired back and wounded Phillips.
