A Louisiana, Mo., mother facing child endangerment charges after her two-year-old was found naked and wandering alone in a creek will start trial Thursday.
Kristian Riley, 26, is charged with two felony counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
The incident allegedly happened last March.
Authorities say inside Riley's home they found feces on the boy's clothing and toys in addition to trash and a smell of urine.
Riley pleaded not guilty at a hearing in June.
