The trial of an Arlington man accused of killing his former fiance’s 2-year-old son won’t happen until next year. The Courier reports 28-year-old Brent Houdeshell’s trial is now set for January 30. Earlier this month, Aaron Ried of the public defender’s office filed a motion to withdraw as Houdeshell’s lawyer. Court records show Houdeshell is now represented by attorney Adam Nemann of Columbus.
Prosecutor’s charged Houdeshell with murder, endangering children, and tampering with evidence on April 15. Investigators say he beat 2-year-old Breydon Ferrell to death in an apartment on Breckenridge Road on March 31. The boy suffered a broken skull, bruising on the brain, a broken leg, and bruising on the face, arms, legs and feet.
