Iowa Man Denies Using Extension Cord To Beat Grandson
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) A 43-year-old Sioux City man has denied accusations that he used an extension cord to beat his grandson.
The Sioux City Journal says Dayle Webbs pleaded not guilty on Monday to child endangerment resulting in injury. His trial is scheduled to begin June 24.
Court documents say that on Jan. 5 Webbs hit his 6-year-old grandson on a shoulder and thigh and on his neck, back and stomach after the boy got out of bed to get a drink of water. The documents say open, bleeding wounds on the boy's shoulder and thigh were still visible 20 days later.
