COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) - An Avoca woman has been accused of injuring a little boy.
The Daily Nonpareil reports (https://bit.ly/2aeLOyq ) that 23-year-old Tanisha Pallaya has been charged with felony child endangerment causing injury.
Her attorney, Bill McGinn, said Friday that Pallaya would be pleading not guilty.
A court record says the child, who was born in 2012, was taken to an Omaha hospital in May. Doctors say the child’s bruises and abrasions on his back, abdomen, head, arms and elsewhere on his body appeared to have been caused by blunt force and didn’t appear to have been the results of an accident or accidents.
Pallaya’s next court date is set for Aug. 5.
