The L’Anse man accused of nearly beating his ex-girlfriend’s infant daughter to death goes back to court next week.
26-year-old James Cribbs II was scheduled to have his preliminary exam by now.
But it’s been postponed until next Tuesday.
He’s facing a charge of 1st-degree child abuse.
Cribbs is accused of attacking his ex-girlfriend’s 17-month-old daughter in September.
The attack left the baby partially paralyzed.
Cribbs is in the Baraga County Jail on $500,000 bond.
If he posts that, he’s barred from having any contact with anyone under the age of 18.
