UPDATE: Stanton County NE Sheriff releases name of woman found dead in a home near Norfolk
NORFOLK, Neb. (KTIV/US92) - The Stanton County Sheriff's Office has released the name of the female found dead at a home east of Norfolk early Thursday morning.
Stanton County Sheriff Mike Unger identified the female as Keisha Spears.
Spear's body was removed from the home of Kevin Broberg Thursday morning and sent to Omaha for an autopsy.
Sheriff Unger said that the Sheriff's Office and Norfolk Rescue personnel were called to the location just after 4:00 Thursday morning in response to a 911 call.
Broberg was in Stanton County Court this week, where he pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of false reporting, related to a case where Stanton County authorities allege they found a woman with her hands and feet bound in his house.
Mike Unger, Stanton County Sheriff: "At this time we don't know the cause or manner of death. We're hoping that can be determined through the autopsy, as well as toxicology tests that will take several weeks."
Unger expects to find more about the cause of her death on Friday.
Unger said that the sheriff's office did interview Broberg and he was cooperative with authorities.
