      Woman accused of abusing teen due in Calhoun Co. court

      BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A woman accused of child abuse is expected in court Monday in Calhoun County.

      A judge will decide if there's enough evidence to send Sara Mendez-Lucas to trial on charges of third degree child abuse.

      A preliminary hearing was postponed last week.

      Lucas was arrested late last month at a home on Rittenhouse Avenue in Battle Creek.

      Police had been checking on a tip when they say they found a 14-year-old tied up in the dining room with belt marks on his body.

      The boy had run away from home just three-days earlier.
