The boyfriend of a woman whose 3-year-old son was found encased in concrete has pleaded not guilty to charges involving the boy's father.

Stephen Bodine, 40, is charged with aggravated assault and criminal damage to property involving Carlo Brewer. The body of Brewer's son, Evan, was found September 2 in concrete at the home where the alleged attack happened.

Evan's mother, Miranda Miller, waived her preliminary hearing on a charge of aggravated interference with parental custody.

No charges have been filed in Evan's death, and investigators have not said how the boy died.
