Two South Dakota men face attempted murder and several other charges in a high-speed chase through central Nebraska.
Aleksandr Voznyuk, of Sioux Falls, S.D., and Petr Strizheus, of Harrisburg, S.D., appeared Friday in Kearney County Court for preliminary hearings. Their cases were bound over for trial in district court.
Trooper Paul Hazard testified that the men led him on a high-speed chase on Interstate 80 on Jan. 27. He said Strizheus drove while Voznyuk shot at him from the passenger's seat.
Hazard said that after a 39-mile chase, the men abandoned their car near Minden and fled on foot. They were arrested the next day.
The men are being held on $500,000 bond each.
