Probe into child's death now on hold

A criminal investigation is on hold in the case of a two-year-old girl found dead in western Nebraska.

According to Keith County Attorney Blake Edwards, the criminal investigation into the death of Morgan Dehning of Brule has been put on hold after preliminary autopsy results showed no immediate signs of abuse or other suspicious activity.

Edwards says officials will be conducting toxicology tests as a precaution, but at this point, despite no official cause of death, a criminal investigation is on hold until further notice.

Officials were called to the girl’s home Wednesday afternoon where Dehning was found deceased.
