Charges dropped in Broken Bow toddler death case

Posted: Updated:

BROKEN BOW, Neb. (AP) - A 51-year-old Broken Bow woman no longer faces charges in the death of a 20-month-old boy.

Online court records say the charges against Diane Hill were dismissed last week at the request of Custer County prosecutors, who didn't explain their reasons. The charges could be refiled, however.

Hill and her daughter, 24-year-old Brittney Pryce, were charged after the Nov. 22, 2013, death of Noah Pryce. Investigators say the boy died of a head injury suffered while in the care of Pryce and her mother.

The boy was a ward of the state, and Brittney Pryce and her husband were his guardians.

Brittney Pryce is still charged and is scheduled for a hearing on July 24.
