A 28-year-old Columbus, Nebraska man accused of kicking his girlfriend's 4-year-old son when the boy opened some gifts before Christmas will stand trial as a habitual criminal.
Nathan Brokaw is set to stand trial April 1st on charges of felony child abuse and being a habitual criminal for previous drug, theft and burglary convictions.
Last month, a day care operator contacted police when the boy showed up with injuries to the left side of his face and to his neck. An affidavit says the boy told a Columbus police officer that he'd been kicked by Brokaw when his mother wasn't in the room.
