GRAND ISLAND, Neb. -- A Grand Island man charged with attempted murder is now going to trial court.

24-year-old Thomas Franks was charged after police arrested him for stabbing another man with a kitchen knife at a Grand Island used car parking lot on May 24th.

He's also charged with first-degree assault and first-degree false imprisonment related to incidents which happened May 21st. In total, he faces six charges.

Late last week, Franks waived an evidence hearing in Hall County Court. The judge then transferred the case to Hall County District Court for possible trial.

He faces a maximum combined 53 years in prison for the charges.
