Comanche Co. woman to stand trial for child abuse

COMANCHE CO., Okla_ A Comanche County child abuse case against a mother is set to go to trial following the beating death of her 10-year old son.

At Friday's preliminary hearing for Denise Ray, her attorney argued there wasn't enough evidence to prove Ray had ever abused her son. It was a long shot especially after she testified just a few months ago that she had hit her son with a board the night he died.

In June of this year, Ray testified in a murder trail against her husband Lancey Ray, who was later found guilty of first-degree murder in the death of the boy.

A jury found that Lancey's brutal beating of the boy was so severe that his injuries were what led to his death. Denise testified she too had hit her son with a wooden board, but her attorney argued Friday that it didn't prove abuse.

Police records showed that Denise told detectives that she had in fact broke the board over her son behind while spanking him. The judge said that was enough to allow her to stand trial.

Denise has been released on $50,000 bond.
