The case against a Dodge City woman charged with identity fraud was dismissed Tuesday at the state's request, according to Ford County District Court records.
    Flory M. Tino-Lopez's case was dismissed without prejudice, which means the state could refile it at a later date.
    Assistant Ford County Attorney David Belling declined to comment on the case Wednesday, and defense attorney Linda Eckelman was not immediately available for comment.
    Tino-Lopez was accused of using someone else's identity to get a job at National Beef sometime between June 19 and July 2, when she was arrested.
    Her husband, Dodge City resident Francisco Pablo-Bicente, is facing first-degree and child abuse charges stemming from the July 2 death of their infant son, Juan C. Pablo-Tino.
    Tino-Lopez, who is not accused of causing her son's death, testified at an Oct. 17 hearing that she had left the boy in her husband's care before going to work the afternoon of July 2.
