Gabel will challenge charges
I From Staff Reports
The roan accused of murder in the
1995 slaying of a UNL student will be
given a chance to challenge the charges
against him.
Greg Gabel, 32, appeared in Dis
trict Court Wednesday to be arraigned
A man exposed himself to two
women at a toy store Tuesday, but re
assured one of their husbands that it
was the last time*
TWo women were shopping at Ibys
R Us, 5520 N. 27th St., when a man
approached them in an aisle, Lincoln
police Sgt. Tferry Sherrill said.
He was wearing a long shirt and his
pants were open. He pulled his shirt
up and showed his penis to them,
Sherrill said.
One of the women's husbands
found die man and asked him if he had
exposed himself.
He replied, “Yes, I did and it will
never happen again.** He fled the store
before police arrived, Sherrill said.
He was described as a white man
weighing about 165 pounds, 5 feet 10
inches tall, with brown, curly hair and
glasses. He was wearing a shirt with
cows on it and dark, multicolored
for first-degree murder and use of z
weapon to commit a felony.
Instead, Lancaster County Deputy
Public Defender Scott Helvie chal
lenged the changes because Gabel had
not been indicted by a grand jury.
Helvie also contested the wording
of the charges: that the murder was
premeditated, and murder was commit
ted in conjunction with another felony
Gabel was arrested in June on sus
picion of murdering Martina
McMenamin, a sophomore at the Uni
versity of Nebraska-Lincoln. Police
matched DNA from his blood to DNA
in a blond hair found at the crime scene.
| Gabel will appear before Lancaster
County Judge William Blue an Oct. 18
for a hearing on the motion.

TUITION from page 1
-dered solely by tuition, students
would face a 6 percent tuition in
crease, Van Ham said.
Luckily, that’s not likely to hap
pen. J
“Tuition is only one of the pos
sible sources,” Van Horn said. “The
university match could be done in a
lot of ways, like reallocation.”
NU Regent Nancy O’Brien of
Waterloo said she agreed.
"Puttfflglhe entire burden on the
students is highly unlikely,’’ O’Brien
said. “President Sfmith has no inten
tion of nickel and dining the stu
dents for every issue that comes

Smith would fund through a sub
stantial tuition increase would be

O'Brien said she supposed that
bond funding would be handled
through internal reallocation of
funds as well as a small tuition in
Putting the improvements off
will just mean paying more in the
future, Van Horn said.
The cost of renovation rises ev
ery year, as construction inflation is
about 5 percent each year, he said.
Deterioration doesn't take a break,
either, so the longer restoration is
put off, the worse die problem gets.
The bend issue has to be ap
proved by the Nebraska Legislature
before final decisions on how to
fund it are made. The next Legisla
