$10M bail set for man accused of killing Iowa deputy

He is being held in Douglas County because that's where he was arrested.

The judge said that due to the serious nature of the crime, the case required a high bond.

Authorities are still working to determine how Correa-Carmenaty obtained the gun and whether he had been able to free himself from his shackles during the ride back from court.

A Pottawattamie County Sheriff's deputy was fatally shot by an inmate who escaped the jail in Council Bluffs, Iowa Monday morning.

A 10-year veteran, Deputy Pat Morgan, 59, was shot in the torso and is in stable condition with injuries not considered life-threatening, the sheriff said.

The Pottawattamie County Sheriff is expected to hold a news conference at 4:30 pm on Monday.

Manchester United's Paul Pogba out of Manchester derby
The stakes are high in the third Manchester Derby of the season, with Champions League qualification points on the line. Mourinho's United are now at the 5th spot with 63 points while Pep Guardiola's City are just above them with 64 points.

A spokesperson at Nebraska Medicine tells WOWT 6 News they have two patients at the hospital from the Pottawattamie County Jail shooting scene. The inmate was captured after crashing the stolen vehicle during a police chase in neighboring Nebraska. But Wilbur said he will work to bring him back to Iowa to prosecute him on charges of first-degree murder and attempted murder.

If he refuses, the governors of Nebraska and Iowa will need to sign warrants agreeing to the extradition. A Pottawattamie County van was found sitting empty at 25th street and Avenue I in Council Bluffs that the inmate may have used to escape.

He is set to appear in a jailhouse court on Wednesday in Omaha to face charges of kidnapping and other charges in in Nebraska, according to Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine.

"We had already agreed to a plea agreement", said Matt Wilber the Pottawattamie County Attorney, "I never regretted one more, even at that moment not knowing what was going to go on later that morning". If he fights it, it could take a couple of months. One other inmate was in the van, but Danker said he didn't believe she was involved. You can delay it. "It's something we never hope happens in this line of work, but the reality is, that it does". Through an interpreter, Correa-Carmenaty said during the hearing that he killed the man because he was an idiot, Wilber said.

Kleine said his office then would dismiss the charges in Douglas County so that Correa-Carmenaty could face the charges in Pottawattamie County, but with the option of refiling the charges within three years.
