St. Josephâ€™s Catholic Church members gathered in their Parish hall for Sunday morning Mass July 27, as they did the evening before due to a Saturday morning fire in their church next door. A fire that the State Fire Marshall later that day ruled as arson.
Matthew Grubtill, 23, of Broken Bow has been arrested for the crime.
The beer bottles, beer caps and matches left in the church led the Broken Bow Police to Grubtill. He was arrested at his residence following the execution of a search warrant later that day.
(AP) â€” Cargill plans to close a Milwaukee beef-processing plant which employs about 600 people on Friday due to a shortage of cattle.
A Midwest drought in 2011 and 2012 hurt cattle levels, said Cargill spokesman Mike Martin. Now, many herders are breeding the cattle they have and not selling them. U.S. beef cattle herd is at its lowest level since 1951, Cargill said.
The Milwaukee plant slaughters live cattle and packages beef products. The meat producer bought the plant, which can process as much as 1,400 animals a day, in 2001.
(AP) â€” Lexington police are looking for a 25-year-old man who they say shot at officers.
Police say officers sent at 12:45 a.m. Wednesday to check on a disturbance saw Jose Covarrubias, of Lexington, fire a handgun at a woman fleeing a house. The officers say he also fired at their vehicles, and one officer returned fire before Covarrubias fled the scene.
A child was treated at a hospital for a minor injury from an apparent ricochet.
An arrest warrant for Covarrubias says he's wanted on two counts of attempted murder and other crimes.
