SIOUX CITY -- Prosecutors have dismissed a criminal case against a woman who had been accused of taking part in a burglary in which the victim was shocked with a stun gun.

Dora Morris, 32, a transient living in Sioux City, had been charged with one count of first-degree burglary. On Thursday, Assistant Woodbury County Attorney Kristine Timmins filed a motion to dismiss the case, saying more investigation was needed. District Judge Tod Deck dismissed the case.

Morris had been accused of being one of two people who, according to a police complaint, forcibly entered a residence in the 1700 block of Douglas Street on Sept. 20 and used a stun gun on the occupant, rendering the victim unable to defend himself. The two then took the man's cellphone and other belongings before fleeing from the home.
