Plea Deal Reached in Nebraska Youth Center Stabbings



An 18-year-old has made a plea deal in the stabbings of two Nebraska Youth Center employees in North Platte. Keenan Lambert pleaded no contest to felony assault and use of a deadly weapon. Prosecutors reduced the original charge of attempted murder in return for a plea agreement. Prosecutors say Lambert and 16-year-old Jordan Baker stabbed Diana Johns and Robin Schneider last July 8, stole an employee's vehicle and fled. They were captured later that day in Dawson County. Last month Baker made the same plea deal as Lambert. Both are scheduled to be sentenced on April 28.
