A 32-year-old man has pleaded guilty to kicking a 1-year-old African-American boy at a Dillons store. On Thursday Trace Riff entered a guilty plea to charges of attempted aggravated battery of a child and disorderly conduct for the language he used. He also pleaded guilty to the use of toxic vapors and methamphetamine possession.

Riff's family says he suffers from mental illness and substance abuse. He will now go to the Larned State Hospital for a mental evaluation, as part of the deal with prosecutors.
