WICHITA, Kan. (KNSS) – The boyfriend of a Wichita woman whose son, 3, was found encased in concrete has waived his right to a preliminary hearing.  

Stephen Bodine, 40, made an appearance Thursday morning in a Sedgwick County courtroom over a custody dispute involving Evan Brewer.

KSN News reports that Bodine also pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated assault and criminal damage to property. His trial is set for Nov. 7.

Brewer’s body was found on Sept. 2 at the home Bodine shared with the boy’s mother, Miranda Miller, 36. She also waived her right to a preliminary hearing on charges of aggravated interference with parental custody.

The investigation into the child's death is ongoing.  No charges in that case have been filed.
