CASS COUNTY, NE – A Nebraska man has been sentenced to prison for causing a fatal car accident in Cass County last year.
According to the Omaha World-Herald, 36-year-old Jade R. Gunn of Murray pleaded guilty to motor vehicle homicide in the case. The accident happened at about 10 p.m. on June 30, 2019 on 24th Street, southwest of Plattsmouth.
