LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) — The father of a 3-year-old girl and his girlfriend will stand trial on charges in the toddler’s death in La Crosse County.

Medical examiner Vincent Tranchida testified Wednesday in court that Audryna Bartsh had suffered bleeding on the brain, a black eye and more than four dozen scrapes and bruises before she died Oct. 31. The toddler was also dehydrated and emaciated.

Thirty-year-old Dylan Bartsh and 24-year-old Jaymie Rundle are charged with child neglect resulting in death and physical abuse of a child. Bartsh and Rundle were living in Holmen. The La Crosse Tribune says they’re due back in court for arraignment Tuesday.

Bartsh’s attorney declined comment Thursday. A defense attorney for Rundle did not immediately respond to calls for comment.
