Bellevue Father Receives Life Sentence for Murdering Children, Plans Appeal

Bellevue, Nebraska – A Bellevue father has been sentenced to life in prison without parole for the murder of his two children, Emily and Theodore Price. Adam Price was convicted of two counts of first-degree murder in the tragic deaths that occurred in May 2021.

During the sentencing, Price expressed his love for his wife and children and asked for prayers. His ex-wife, Mary Nielsen, attended the sentencing remotely via Zoom, highlighting the devastating impact of this horrific crime on the family.

Sarpy County prosecutor, Gage Cobb, emphasized that individuals who truly love their children would not commit such acts of violence. The defense plans to appeal the decision, citing issues such as Price’s confession to a priest and a medical condition that had delayed the trial.

Throughout the trial, prosecutors presented compelling evidence, including video footage of Price withdrawing cash from banks in Bellevue before attempting to flee to California. This evidence painted a clear picture of Price’s calculated plan to harm his children and evade justice.

The sentencing marks the end of a harrowing legal process that has gripped the community. The case serves as a tragic reminder of the devastating consequences of domestic violence and the importance of holding perpetrators accountable for their actions.

As the community continues to grapple with this heartbreaking tragedy, the focus remains on seeking justice for Emily and Theodore Price, whose lives were senselessly cut short by an unfathomable act of violence.
