BROKEN BOW, Neb. (AP) - A woman charged in the death of a Broken Bow toddler has pleaded not guilty.

KOLN television reports (https://bit.ly/1p2q6Ry ) that 24-year-old Brittany Pryce pleaded not guilty Thursday in Custer County District Court. A trial date was set for Feb. 9

Authorities say 20-month-old Noah Pryce sustained a suspicious head injury in November while in the car of Pryce and her mother, Diane Hill. The infant later died in an Omaha hospital.

Hill and Brittany Pryce were initially charged with second-degree murder, but the case against Hill was dismissed in July. The murder charge against Price was also dropped, and she’s now only charged with second-degree child abuse.

Authorities say Brittany Pryce and her husband, Richard Pryce, were Noah’s guardians.
