Prosecutors say 3-year-old Misty Herrin was unresponsive when she arrived at a Gothenburg hospital on Dec. 21, 2010. She was flown to a Kearney hospital, where she underwent surgery brain surgery. She died the next day. Doris Herrin had told doctors the girl fell, but evidence showed the little girl had been hit in the head several times and shaken.
