KEARNEY, Neb. — A Kearney man accused of shaking a 4-month-old girl will face trial in January.
Trey Tickle, 23, is charged in Buffalo County District Court with four counts of felony child abuse and one count of felony possession of methamphetamine.
Tickle has denied the allegations.
The child's mother, Brittney Schlund, 22, of Kearney was convicted of felony child abuse in the same incident for placing the child and another child in a situation that endangered them. In exchange for her plea, Schlund has agreed to testify against Tickle.
On Tuesday, Tickle remained in custody at the Buffalo County Jail on $15,000 cash bail.
Schlund is free on bail and will be sentenced in February.
