NORTH PLATTE — Two teenagers accused of stabbing workers at a North Platte youth center will undergo psychological evaluations.

Attorneys for 18-year-old Keenan Lambert of Amherst and 16-year-old Jordan Baker of Hastings requested the evaluations during a court appearance Monday. A judge granted them.

The teens are accused of stabbing two workers at the Nebraska Youth Center in July and then fleeing in one of the employees' vehicles. The workers were later hospitalized and survived.

Both teens have been charged as adults with attempted murder, use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony, escape and theft.
