Staff Writer

The case against Brittney Pryce, 26, of Broken Bow will proceed to jury trial Aug. 22. In Custer County District Court, both the Prosecution and the Defense offered please agreements which were rejected. The Defense also submitted a motion to allow character evidence to which the State objected. After hearing arguments, District Court Judge Karin Noakes overruled the motion.

Pryce is charged one count, Child Abuse, a Class 1B Felony. The minimum sentence is 20 years; the maximum is life. A 21 month old boy died in November, 2013, from injuries sustained while in Pryce's foster care.
