NEVADA, Iowa – Law enforcement agencies are planning to give an update Friday in the investigation into the brutal assault of an 82-year-old woman that happened last summer in Kelley.

The Story County Sheriff’s Office and the Story County Attorney’s Office are holding a news conference Friday morning to release more information on the home invasion in which the 82-year-old woman was severely injured. She spent a week in the hospital following the August 23rd, 2018 incident.

At the time, investigators said three men broke into the home and assaulted her. Robbery was believed to be the motive, according to then-Chief Deputy Barry Thomas of the Story County Sheriff’s Office.
