A judge in Lewis County has arraigned Christopher Sheppard and Julia Mick on charges stemming from the death of Mick's baby last year.

They'll both stand trial in October. Mick is charged with child neglect resulting in death and Sheppard is charged with child abuse resulting in death.

Christopher Sheppard was babysitting the boy and left him unattended in a sink. The child fell out of the sink onto his head and later died, according to a criminal complaint. An autopsy revealed several blunt force traumas to the child's brain, among other injuries.

The judge set bail for both at $100,000 each.
