OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - The man arrested after a 1-year-old died as the result of being left in a daycare van for several hours on an intensely hot summer day will have his case heard in district court.

Ryan Williams, 62, previously pleaded not guilty to one count of child abuse by neglect resulting in death. He was due back in court Tuesday; according to court documents, he waived his right to be in court and his right to a preliminary hearing last Wednesday.
