The trial of a Ewing, NE man accused of double-murder and arson has been delayed


33-year-old Matthew Hinrichsen was scheduled to go on trial on first-degree murder, arson and felony weapons charges next week.

But at a pre-trial hearing Wednesday morning, Antelope County District Court Judge James Kube granted the defense's motion to continue the trial.

Hinrichsen is accused of shooting newlyweds Victoria Lee and Alex Vargas and setting fire to their Ewing trailer in December.

His trial is now set to begin August 12th, with a pre-trial conference scheduled for June 26th.

Hinrichsen is currently being held without bond at the Antelope County Jail.
