TROY — A for­mer Troy man pleaded not guilty Mon­day to felony en­dan­ger­ing chil­dren in con­nec­tion with the se­vere beat­ing of his girl­friend’s 3-year-old son in Oc­to­ber.

He is ac­cused of beat­ing the boy Oct. 11 when he was sup­posed to be watch­ing the child while the boy’s mother worked. Troy po­lice said the mother took the boy to the hos­pi­tal around 4:30 a.m. Oct. 12 with in­juries that in­cluded a skull frac­ture and bleed­ing in the brain.

The boy was listed for a time in crit­i­cal con­di­tion at The Chil­dren’s Med­i­cal Cen­ter of Day­ton. He has been re­leased, but re­mains un­der treat­ment.

Fansler’s bail of $100,000, set ear­lier in county Mu­nic­i­pal Court, was con­tin­ued at the ar­raign­ment in county Com­mon Pleas Court. — Nancy Bow­man, con­tribut­ing writer
