The case against a 24-year-old Omaha man charged with second-degree assault in the stabbing of his younger brother has been dismissed.
Tommy Ivory had been accused of stabbing Arriante Ivory, 22.
Douglas County public defender Doug Johnson, representing Tommy Ivory, said Wednesday that Arriante Ivory failed to show up for his older brother's preliminary hearing. So the charges were dropped.
Tommy Ivory was being held on $100,000 bail in connection with the stabbing. He also was charged with use of a weapon to commit a felony.
Arriante Ivory was stabbed in August near 25th and Wirt Streets.
It was the second time in five years that Tommy Ivory was charged with stabbing a brother. He was convicted of second-degree assault in 2008.
A prosecutor has said he wasn't sure if the victim in that incident was Arriante Ivory.
