Saunders County Attorney Scott Tingelhoff announced late Thursday afternoon that the grand jury had met this week and determined no crime had occurred in the death of 47-year-old Gloria O’Connor. O’Connor was found unresponsive in her cell on Feb. 10. She was taken to a Lincoln hospital but could not be revived.
State law requires such an investigation whenever someone dies in custody or while being arrested.
An autopsy showed O’Connor died of a heart attack.
She was serving a 30-day sentence for disorderly conduct, trespassing and other charges when she died.
