CHARLES CITY — A plea change hearing has been set for one of the two parents of a Charles City child charged with child endangerment after their child suffered a severe head injury.

22-year-old Ezekiel Larson and 19-year-old Madison Geerts were charged in late September with one count of child endangerment resulting in serious injury, a Class C felony.

A criminal complaint states that Larson was the only person taking care of his four-month-old child on September 6th when the child received severe head injuries. The complaint says Larson and Geerts knew about the injuries and never arranged for medical attention for the child until four days later. The child had been vomiting, not eating nor sleeping during that time.

In filings made this week in Floyd County District Court, a plea change hearing has now been set for Larson for June 26th, while a final pre-trial conference has been scheduled for Geerts on June 12th prior to her trial that is scheduled to start the next day.
