BRIDGETON, N.J. (CBS) — A judge ruled Nakira Griner fit to stand trial in Bridgeton. On Monday, Griner was arraigned on charges she killed her 23-month-old son, Daniel Griner Jr., in February.

Griner pleaded not guilty. She told investigators she struck the boy because “he wouldn’t eat or listen.”
