Hansen Awaits Appearance in District Court Sept. 14th


Charging documents were filed against Raymond Hansen, 35, of Sidney, on Sept. 6th. Sufficient probable cause was found within the application and affidavit filed to bring the felony charge of deliberate homicide against the Sidney man. Because of this, the preliminary exam was not necessary and Hansen did not appear in Justice Court on Wednesday, Sept. 7th. He is scheduled to appear in Seventh Judicial District Court in Richland County before the Honorable Judge Katherine M. Bidegaray on Wednesday, Sept. 14th at 8:30am.

Hansen allegedly shot Terry Klein, 63, of Sidney, on the morning of Aug. 24th. According to the coroner’s report, Klein died as the result of a single gunshot wound to the head while working to repair a breeched canal south of Sidney. Hansen was arrested later that day after several witnesses gave the description of a man in the area that morning who had been behaving suspiciously; three of the four witnesses who were shown a photo line-up identified Hansen as the man they’d seen. Police issued a search warrant for his residence, recovering potential evidence including a 1911 .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol. There has been no official determination as to what type of gun was used in the shooting.

Bond was set at $2 million and has not been posted; Hansen remains in police custody and will be represented by the Office of the Public Defender.
