A May trial has been set for a Lincoln man accused of stabbing a friend to death in July.
Ivan Fourhorns, 47, waived his right to a speedy trial at a hearing Tuesday, and his public attorney requested time to prepare for trial.
Fourhorns faces a second-degree murder charge and weapons charge related to the death of 58-year-old Joe Solomon.
Police say Solomon and Fourhorns got into an argument after drinking alcohol with others at a Lincoln apartment. Solomon was pronounced dead at a hospital after rescue workers found him not breathing at the apartment.
If convicted, Fourhorns could receive 20 years to life for the murder charge and another 50 years for the weapons count.
