ELIZABETHTOWN, KY (WAVE) – A Hardin County couple accused of abusing their 3-month-old son entered not guilty pleas in court on Tuesday.

Alexander Irwin, 18, and Jessica Capponi, 19, requested a public defender during their arraignment.

In February, the couple's infant son was rushed to Kosair Children's Hospital in Louisville with a skull fracture, broken ribs and multiple bruises. Doctors said he also was extremely malnourished.

Irwin and Capponi are charged with assault and criminal abuse.
