MINDEN, Neb. — A failure of the system…That’s what former neighbors say contributed to the death of 4-year-old Landon Payne of rural Kearney County.

Landon’s aunt, Sharon Payne Turnell, 37; her husband, Charles Turnell, 38; and her daughter, Katie Payne, 19, each have been charged with aiding and abetting child abuse that led to Landon’s death Dec. 22. The family lived in Pleasanton, Neb., from September 2006 to October 2009. During that time, neighbors say they called law enforcement and the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services numerous times to report suspected abuse and neglect.
