Probable cause was found Tuesday (Jan. 5) in Mercer County Circuit Court to continue the case of an Aledo man charged with abusing a 3-month-old child.

At the beginning of proceedings, amended charges were filed against Justin Kidd, 33. He now faces charges of aggravated battery and aggravated battery of a child, both Class III felonies, and aggravated domestic battery, a Class IV felony.

Kidd entered a plea of not guilty on Tuesday.

Testimony was presented that the child suffered 23 compression fractures to his body, as well as a fractured leg.
