Luke Lefever makes an appearance in the Lincoln County Courthouse

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (Nebraska) – A man who spent decades behind bars returned to Lincoln County on Monday afternoon.

In June of 2018, the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office said Luke Lefever fought with a Dawson County law enforcement officer before stealing a UTV and driving away. A chase ensued in Dawson County and extended into Lincoln County involving the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department and the Nebraska State Patrol. Eventually, Lefever was taken into custody near Hershey.

Lefever and his attorney on Monday asked Judge Michael Piccolo to institute a parallel ruling for Lefever’s allegations in Lincoln County.

The 34-year-old is serving 48 to 50 years in the Nebraska State Penitentiary on attempted murder charges in connection with a shootout with Howard County sheriff’s deputies on New Year’s Eve in 2018.
