Charged dropped in case against driver in man’s death
GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) — A prosecutor has dropped a charge stemming from the traffic death of a man in Grand Island.
Robin Nehls, of Grand Island, was arrested a year ago, coming forward three days after 28-year-old Justin Foster was fatally struck. The Grand Island Independent reports that Nehls had pleaded not guilty to the felony charge: failure to stop and render aid in a case of serious injury or death.
Prosecutor Sarah Carstensen made a motion in court Monday to dismiss the charge against Nehls. She said Wednesday that, after reviewing evidence and consulting with investigators, she concluded that a conviction was unlikely.
