      Pike County mom heads to trial on child endangerment charges

      A Louisiana, Mo., mother facing child endangerment charges will start trial Thursday.

      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.
