Marion and McPherson counties each are housing an inmate for the other because the inmates are related to sheriff’s office staff members.
Nick A. Wing, 44, McPherson, has been held in Marion County Jail since Dec. 15 — the same day he pleaded no contest in McPherson County District Court to rape and attempted indecent liberties. A charge of attempted aggravated indecent liberties was dismissed as part of a plea agreement. His sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 29.
Wing originally was charged Dec. 13, 2022 with rape of a child younger than 14 and two counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child. Charges against him were amended three times as plea negotiations took place.
Dale E. Weber, 64, Florence, has been held in McPherson County Jail since he was arrested Dec. 11 on suspicion of aggravated indecent liberties with a child. The alleged victim is 10. He formally was charged Dec. 20. Preliminary hearing for Weber has been delayed twice.
He is in McPherson because he has relatives who work at Marion County Jail, Soyez said.
