NEWTON — A judge this afternoon found sufficient evidence to send Chad Carr to trial on a charge that he murdered 19-month-old Vincent Hill.
It's not yet clear when the trial will be held. Carr, the boyfriend of Vincent's mother, entered a plea of not guilty. Vincent died in late March of injuries that included a beating and, likely, suffocation, County Attorney David Yoder has said.
Vincent and his mother, Katheryn Nycole Dale, had been living at a North Newton duplex with Carr.Carr, 26, has been charged with first-degree murder, one count of aggravated battery and one count of child abuse in connection with Vincent's injuries.
