The Muskogee County District Attorney's Office has dismissed a charge of child neglect against a grandmother of a 4-year-old girl who died in 2011.

Betty Hall, 43, was arrested and charged in June 2011 after Muskogee Police investigated the case.

According to court records, Hall's trial was set to begin Monday, but the DA's office asked to dismiss the charge without prejudice and the judge agreed. 

Following her arrest, Hall had pointed the finger at her stepson, Robert Meeks II. A charge of child sexual abuse was dismissed without prejudice against Meeks in August 2011.

Dismissed without prejudice means the charge can be refiled at a later date.
