Fort Wayne, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - A Fort Wayne couple appeared in court Wednesday morning and learned when they will stand trial for the awful abuse of four small children.

Antonio Henderson, 22, is charged with eight felonies and is scheduled to stand trial September 26. The children's mother, 27-year-old Breezy Parker, faces felony charges of neglect. Her trial will begin October 9.

Henderson is accused of hitting and choking the children while Parker was at work.

Court papers say Parker knew about the abuse, including Henderson's choking the 4, 5 and 8 year olds until they passed out and his swinging a 1-year-old by her feet and throwing her on a couch.

Authorities found the children covered in bruises in a home with no heat and proceeded to put them in emergency foster care.
