OSBORNE, Kan. (AP) _ A man who was shot after a standoff in north-central Kansas has pleaded no contest to one count of attempted murder.
Twenty-two-year-old Matthew Thille was scheduled to go to trial Monday on four counts of attempted murder.
The Hays Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/LAaCRf ) Thille pleaded no contest to one count in a plea agreement earlier this month.
Thille was charged after an eight-hour standoff March 21 in Downs that came after he ran from a Jewell County courtroom and led police on a chase from Mankato to Downs.
He was shot several times by Kansas Highway Patrol officers. Prosecutors say he had a gun in his hand. The attempted murder charges were filed after Thille shot at officers during the chase and standoff.
Sentencing is set for Aug. 15.
