A 42-year-old Platte County woman has denied allegations that she harshly disciplined her children.

Janelle Gertsch is scheduled to begin trial on June 18. She's pleaded not guilty to five counts of felony child abuse that officials say occurred over three months last fall.

Gertsch and her live-in boyfriend, 44-year-old Larry Einspahr Jr., were accused of abusing her 12-year-old son and 9-year-old daughter. Officials described the abuse as excessive discipline.

Einspahr already has pleaded no contest to two counts of physically abusing the two children. His sentencing is scheduled for May 3.
