A Wichita couple charged with child abuse waives their right to a preliminary hearing.
Aaron Piland and Christina Schulte appeared in Sedgwick County district court Wednesday. A hearing was scheduled to determine whether there was enough evidence in the case to send it to trial.
The two were arrested earlier this month after a 3-month-old boy was hospitalized with severe head injuries.
Police said the couple took the baby in for treatment after he was unresponsive during a bath.
Investigators found signs of abuse, and arrested the couple.
The couple waived their right to the hearing. Their next court appearance has not been scheduled.
The baby has been released from the hospital and is living with a foster family, according to Wichita Police.
