LEXINGTON, Neb. (AP) - A Lexington woman and her boyfriend have been charged with child abuse, accused of injuring her 17-month-old son.

Lexington radio station KRVN says (https://bit.ly/1horrc6) 20-year-old Kelsey Dangler was arraigned on Tuesday. Her attorney didn’t immediately return a call Wednesday from The Associated Press.

Her boyfriend is 21-year-old Christopher Perez, of North Platte. He’s already been arraigned on the same felony charge. Perez’s attorney, Bob Lindemeier (LIHN’-deh-meye-ur), says Perez intends to plead not guilty.

Authorities say Dangler took her son, Zachary Simite, to Lexington Regional Health Center on Feb. 18. Court documents say Dangler told police that Perez fell on the child while they were playing. Medical personnel say the boy’s injuries were not consistent with Dangler’s account.
