ELIZABETHVILLE, Pa. (WHTM) -

An Elizabethville woman is headed to trial on charges she severely injured her 15-month-old baby.

Mackenzie Gordy, 20, was held for court on counts of aggravated assault and endangering the welfare of a child at her preliminary hearing Tuesday before a district judge.

Prosecutors allege that Gordy's son had a bruised eye, abrasions to his the right side of his head, a high fever, and was listless and pale when she left the boy with his father Sept. 20 after having custody for the previous four days.

Gordy and the baby's father are separated but share custody of their child, according to prosecutors.

The baby was taken to Holy Spirit Hospital and quickly transferred to Penn State Hershey Medical Center for emergency surgery to repair a tear in his bowel, authorities said.

Prosecutors allege the baby had been abused on multiple occasions for five months.

Gordy's formal arraignment in Dauphin County Court is set of March 3.
