Parents Arrested for Child Abuse
On June 14, 2022, Law Enforcement were asked to respond to Great Plains Health to investigate a possible child abuse. It was found a six-month-old male arrived at the hospital being severely malnourished. The infant was sent to Children’s Hospital in Omaha, NE. for specialized treatment. The infant’s condition has vastly improved as of today.
Investigators from the Sheriff’s Office found the infant had not received any post-natal care from a pediatrician and was born at home. Investigators learned there were additional children in the home, and they were removed.
At the completion of the investigation warrants for Felony Child Abuse were issued for both parents. On June 29, 2022 thirty-seven year old North Platte resident Jason Borda and thirty-four year old Melinda Borda were both arrested and booked into the Lincoln County Detention Center.
