ORD, Neb. (AP) - A North Loup woman charged in the death of her 4-week-old baby has pleaded not guilty.

The Grand Island Independent reports (https://bit.ly/28SFRtF) that 24-year-old Jocelyn Nordin entered the plea Tuesday at a hearing in Valley County District Court. She is charged with intentional child abuse resulting in death.

Prosecutors say Nordin called 911 on May 2 and reported that her baby wasn’t breathing. The baby eventually was flown to an Omaha hospital, where she died on May 9.

Doctors say the infant had suffered a broken skull and other injuries. Authorities say the baby had been dropped on her head twice and violently shaken.
