Defendants in south Modesto child cruelty case appear in court

Three of four defendants charged with child cruelty appeared in court for the first time Wednesday afternoon. A 2-month-old girl living in their south Modesto home suffered “extreme injuries,” police say, and it’s unknown whether she will survive. An investigation into the baby’s injuries led to authorities’ discovery of two families living in the cramped home used to grow marijuana, police said.
