COLUMBUS, Neb. (AP) _ A Columbus man and his girlfriend will go to trial in September for child abuse charges. The pair are accused of abusing his 10-month-old son. 

22-year-old Juan Trejo and his fiancee, 22-year-old Julie Staroscik, have pleaded not guilty to child abuse charges. Their trial is scheduled to begin Sept. 29 in Columbus.

Authorities say Trejo is accused of fracturing the boy's skull by throwing him to a floor when the baby wouldn't stop crying. Trejo faces three counts of child abuse. Staroscik, who is not the boy's biological mother, faces one count of abuse.

A doctor at Children's Hospital & Medical Center in Omaha says the boy had about 20 fractures to his skull, ribs, arms and legs in various stages of healing.
