LaGrange man pleads Not Guilty to four charges
Marcus Mays from LaGrange, Missouri plead Not Guilty at his arraignment held Thursday in Lewis County Court.
Mays was arrested in August after a child abuse investigation and faces four charges: Abuse and Neglect of a Child, Murder in the 2nd degree, Endangering the Welfare of a Child, and Possession of a Controlled Substance.
He was arrested after an investigation revealed a 2-year-old was taken to Blessing Hospital with severe injuries. The child died three days later.
Mays will next appear in court for a trial setting on January 10, 2019 in Lewis County.
