Hearings set for Broken Bow women in toddler death

Posted By: KLKN Newsroom

BROKEN BOW, Neb. (AP) _ Court appearances have been set for two Broken Bow women charged in the death of a 20-month-old boy last fall.

23-year-old Brittney Pryce is scheduled for her first appearance in Custer County Court on April 28. Her mother, 50-year-old Diane Hill, will have her first appearance on May 5.    

The two were arrested last month and charged with second-degree murder and felony child abuse in the Nov. 22, 2013 death of Noah Pryce. Authorities say the boy died of a head injury.    

The boy was a ward of the state, and Brittney Pryce and her husband were his guardians.
The women are out of jail on bond. Phone listings for them couldn't be found, and online court records don't list attorneys for them.
