The child abuse case against a Hersey woman is headed to Lincoln County District Court.

A judge on Thursday bound the case over. Forty-three-year-old Deanna Fischer is charged with child abuse and cruelty toward a child.

Her husband, Daniel Fischer, who also was charged, committed suicide last month. His body was found on April 17 in an irrigation ditch. He was charged two weeks earlier with three counts of sexual assault of children.

According to court documents, five girls ages 7 to 15 reported being assaulted by Daniel Fischer at the couple's home. Authorities say Deanna Fischer photographed some of the assaults.
