Grand jury requested

March 14, 2018 GMT

A grand jury may be convened in Cedar County in connection with the death of a Yankton woman.

On Monday, Cedar County Attorney Edward H. Matney announced the court filing in regard to the death of 21-year-old Jessi L. Anderson.

Anderson died on June 29, 2017, as a result of a vehicular accident east of Fordyce.

At the time, the Cedar County sheriff’s office reported that Anderson was operating an all-terrain vehicle when the vehicle failed to maneuver the T-intersection at 89th Road and 560th Avenue.

Anderson was thrown from the vehicle, and was pronounced dead at the scene from injuries sustained during the accident.

In Nebraska, district court judges have the authority to convene grand juries.
