The case against Buay Koka was dismissed at the request of prosecutors in December, more than three months after the incident is alleged to have occurred. The man's defense attorney declined to say why the case was thrown out. 

LPD Officer Erin Spilker in August said at about 4:30 p.m. Saturday they were called to a home in the 6900 block of Whitewater Lane, north of 14th Street and Fletcher Avenue, where they found a 37-year-old woman with a significant injury to her ear.

The woman was taken to a Lincoln hospital for the injury, which was not believed to be life-threatening.

Police arrested Koka on suspicion of second-degree domestic assault and child abuse.
