HASTINGS, Neb. (AP) — A Hastings man charged with murder now faces an additional charge of conspiracy to commit robbery.

The Hastings Tribune reports that prosecutors recently added the new charge against 22-year-old Daniel B. Harden, of Hastings. Two other people are also charged in connection with the 2017 death of Jose Hansen.

Harden and Mullen have pleaded not guilty to the murder and weapons charges.
