BROKEN BOW, Neb. (AP) - A sentencing hearing has been delayed for a woman convicted in the 2013 death of her nephew in Broken Bow.

The Kearney Hub reports (https://bit.ly/2eDCtBd ) that the attorney for 26-year-old Brittney Pryce sought the delay because Pryce is undergoing a 90-day evaluation. The attorney also is seeking a new trial, based on what he says is new evidence about Pryce’s mental condition.

The judge set a new sentencing date of Dec. 15 and ordered a Nov. 10 hearing on trial motion.

Authorities say 20-month-old Noah Pryce suffered a fatal head injury in November 2013 while in the care of Pryce and Pryce’s mother, Diane Hill. Both women were initially charged with second-degree murder. The case against Hill was dismissed. Pryce later was convicted of child abuse resulting in death.

This story has been corrected to show the boy suffered the injury while in the care of Pryce and her mother, not in the car with Pryce and her mother.
