ODESSA, Neb. — Authorities have dropped charges filed against a Liberty Township man after a stabbing in south-central Nebraska.
Last week a district judge in Nebraska's Buffalo County granted a prosecution motion to dismiss the case, according to the Nebraska newspaper.
After McDonald was given a psychiatric evaluation, prosecutor Mike Mefferd concluded that state law wouldn’t permit McDonald’s prosecution. McDonald’s attorney had said McDonald has a mental disorder, according to the Kearney Hub.
Authorities say McDonald and another man were traveling in separate vehicles on a county road in Odessa when they exchanged words. The Buffalo County Sheriff’s Office says McDonald stabbed the man after they got out of their vehicles.
