A northeast Nebraska father and son were sentenced Thursday to 40 to 60 years in prison for killing a Rosalie man whose body was found in his burned-out house.
Derek Olson, 29, pleaded no contest to second-degree murder and second-degree arson in the March 10, 2017, death of 64-year-old Ernest Warnock.
And his father, Jody Olson, 50, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.
Cuming County District Judge Mark Johnson gave Derek Olson two to four years more on the arson charge.
He agreed to a plea deal with prosecutors after an earlier trial ended in a mistrial when an investigator mentioned a lie detector test taken by a witness.
