A Holt, Missouri resident is set to appear before the Clinton County Circuit Court Tuesday afternoon.
Justin Webb, 34, was charged last year with felony child abuse and second degree murder in the death of his four-year old son Lucas Webb. The same charges were filed against his step mother Melissa Webb, 32.
The four-year old died in early October of 2012 of blunt force trauma.
Webb will appear for a preliminary hearing at 1 P.M.
