Chappell Woman Gets 20-40 Years For Fatal Stabbing


CHAPPELL, Neb. (AP) – A Chappell woman has been sentenced to 20-to-40 years in prison for a January 2019 stabbing death in Chappell.

50-year old Susan Glenn was originally charged with 1st-degree murder, 1st-degree assault, and felony use of a deadly weapon in the death of 71-year old Robert Mick, but pleaded guilty in October to reduced charges of 1st and 2nd-degree assault.

She received consecutive 10-to-20 terms on each count. 20 years is the maximum for 2nd-degree assault, but Glenn could have received up to 50-years on the 1st-degree assault charge. With good time and credit for 387 days time served, she will be eligible for parole in just under 9 years.

Court records show a witness was with Mick and on the phone with dispatchers when Glenn came out of a mobile home, stabbed Mick, and fled in her car. She surrendered to Deuel County Sheriff’s deputies about a hour later and admitted stabbing Mick, who died of his wounds 4 days later.
