Father charged in children’s deaths goes to trial

PAPILLION, Neb. – A Bellevue man is headed to trial in connection with the deaths of his two children. 

On Monday, Adam Price waived his preliminary hearing set for Tuesday. He is charged with two counts of felony child abuse or neglect resulting in death. 

His two children, 5-year-old Emily and 3-year-old Theodore, were found dead in his home during a welfare check last month. 

The cause of death remains under investigation, according to the Sarpy County Attorney’s Office, but police are calling it a homicide. 

Price was arrested in California and extradited to Nebraska last month.
