SIOUX CITY | A woman accused of taking part in a home invasion that resulted in two occupants being assaulted has pleaded not guilty to burglary, assault and unrelated drug charges.
Nadeen Meyer Dible, 43, of Sioux City, entered her written plea Monday in Woodbury County District Court to two counts of willful injury and single counts of first-degree burglary, domestic abuse assault, possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and failure to affix a drug tax stamp. Three of the charges carry a habitual offender enhancement, which, because of Dible's previous convictions, increases the prison sentence for those crimes to 15 years.
According to court documents, Dible and Eric Bishop broke into a home in the 500 block of Third Street in Moville, Iowa, on Aug. 14 and assaulted a female and a male with whom Dible had had a relationship. Dible is accused of hitting the woman in the face several times.
Dible also was arrested June 27 in possession of methamphetamine, court records show.
Bishop, 37, has pleaded not guilty to numerous charges linked to the Aug. 14 assault and other unrelated incidents.
