A judge Friday found enough evidence to order a Bakersfield couple to stand trial on child abuse charges that led to the death of their toddler in 2018 during a preliminary hearing in Kern County Superior Court.

Tashe Gregory, 22, and Billy Ray Webb, 31, each face one felony count of willful cruelty to a child following the death of their daughter A-Mylah Whitfield on Aug. 25, 2018. They face more than a decade in prison if convicted.
