Omaha area prosecutors have upped the charges facing a man accused of killing his 2 young children in May because autopsy results show they were smothered.
36-year old Adam Price is now charged with 2 counts of 1st-degree murder for the deaths of 5-year old Emily and 3-year old Theodore. He was originally facing 2 counts of negligent child abuse resulting in death.
Sarpy County authorities have said the children were staying with Price, their non-custodial parent, in Bellevue on a court-ordered visitation when they didn’t call their mother in Illinois as scheduled.
She had a friend go to the home, where the woman discovered the bodies of the children, who’d apparently been dead for 2 days.
Price was arrested several hours later near San Francisco in Pacifica, Calif.
