NORTH LOUP, Neb. (AP) - A North Loup woman is scheduled to be arraigned Monday, accused of child abuse in the death of her 4-week-old daughter.

Online court records say 24-year-old Jocelyn Nordin is charged with intentional child abuse resulting in death. The records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment for her.

She originally was charged with intentional child abuse causing serious injury, but that charge was changed with the death of her daughter on May 9.

Valley County prosecutors say Nordin called 911 May 2 and reported that her baby wasn’t breathing. The baby eventually was flown to an Omaha hospital. 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.
