Fort Wayne, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - 23-year-old Nichole Gruss was in court Tuesday morning, where a judge decided she'll stand trial November 15th and 16th for felony neglect of a dependent resulting in serious bodily injury and neglect of a dependent, where the child was put in a situation endangering its health.
Police say Gruss's three-year-old son had broken bones, bruises and scars from her and her girlfriend.
Reports show the abuse taking place at a residence on Priscilla Lane.
Doctors say the boy had broken bones, fractures, scars on his butt and injuries to his head.
Gruss's partner, 31-year-old Tawoenya Portee, is charged with three felonies, including battery with a deadly weapon and neglect of a dependent resulting in serious bodily injury, in the case of the three-year-old, who says Portee beat him with shoes, a belt and a bat.
Her trial is scheduled to begin in August.
