      Trial Set for Odessa Strip Club Owner Accused of Gun Threat

      KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) - Trial is set to begin next week for a former central Nebraska strip club owner accused of pulling a gun on patrons last year.

      Jury selection will begin Monday for the trial of 43-year-old William Sheldon.

      Sheldon is charged in Buffalo County District Court with use of a firearm, tampering with evidence and making terroristic threats.

      Prosecutors say that in June 2012, Sheldon pointed a handgun at two brothers outside the club Jammers during a fight and asked them if they wanted to live or die.

      If convicted, Sheldon faces up to 60 years in prison.
