Two Broken Bow women have been arrested on murder charges for the death of a toddler last November.
The Nebraska State Patrol says 23-year-old Brittney Pryce and 50-year-old Diane Hill were taken into custody Tuesday, accused of second degree murder and child abuse resulting in death.
Authorities say 20-month-old Noah Pryce, of Broken Bow, was taken to the hospital in Broken Bow on Nov. 17 with a head injury. Noah died of his injuries at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha a few days later.
The Nebraska State Patrol took over the investigation into Noah's death on Nov. 24. Investigators believe Noah was hurt while in the care of Brittney Pryce and Diane Hill.
The patrol says Noah was a ward of the state, and Brittney Pryce and her husband were his guardians.
