Charges against an Olmsted County woman accused of running over her son were dropped early last month following the woman's death.

Cynthia Lea Grund, 59, was charged with second-degree assault, third-degree assault with substantial bodily harm, and criminal vehicular operation. All three are felony charges. Grund was also charged with misdemeanor domestic assault.

Associate Olmsted County Attorney Joseph Rosholt filed the dismissal request in Olmsted County District Court on Aug. 7.  Court records do not indicate when Grund died or the cause of death.

Grund was accused of intentionally running over her son with a 2004 Ford Explorer on March 18 following a disagreement.
