Although custody rights are still to be determined for the child, an infant boy who suffered serious brain injuries due to abuse from his parents has been released from the hospital in Des Moines and placed in long-term care, according to the Des Moines Register online. The article reports that baby Ethan Neiderbach, now four months old, was admitted to the hospital for severe rib and head injuries this past June and suffered a broken arm before he was even one month old. According to court records, baby Ethan was born with marijuana in his system, and his parents, 20-year-olds Jonas Neiderbach and Jherica Richardson, have been charged with child abuse and child endangerment and are scheduled for trial on November 2, 2009.
