One of two men accused of killing and dismembering a northeast Nebraska man has pleaded no contest to attempted murder and guilty to accessory to a felony charges.

19-year-old Brayan Galvan-Hernandez and his attorney entered the plea Tuesday in a deal with prosecutors.

Dakota County Attorney Kim Watson says both sides have agreed to a sentence of not less than 35 but not more than 40 years in prison on count one.

The accessory count would be served consecutively from 15 to 20 years for a sentence of not less than 50 years nor more than 60 years in prison.

He will be sentenced December 12th in Dakota County District Court.

Authorities say Galvan-Hernandez and 26-year-old Andres Surber, both of Wakefield, fatally shot 41-year-old Kraig Kubik, of Emerson, last November 1st.

In April, a judge ruled that Surber was not mentally competent to stand trial.

Kubik was shot in the back of the head and his dismembered body was found in a culvert in rural Cedar County four days after he was reported missing.
