JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

The Moss Point man accused of beating and torturing his 3-year-old son, Zander Saucier, will remain free on a $100,000 bond after being indicted on two additional counts of felony child abuse.

Nathan Blake McCrory was back in court Tuesday morning following the indictment that was handed down last week.

McCrory was arrested Jan. 24. after witnesses involved in his case said he began intimidating them. His bond was temporarily revoked after the arrest.

Zander’s mother and family were in the courtroom during the hearing, leaving visibly distraught.

Under new bond conditions set by the judge, McCrory will have to wear a steel ankle monitor, and he cannot leave Jackson County except to see his attorney in Biloxi. There is also a specific address in Jackson County he is prohibited from visiting.

The judge set his trial date for July 24.

McCrory was initially arrested on two counts of child abuse in April 2016 after Zander was rushed to the hospital with a number of injuries, including a lacerated liver, a bleed on the brain, cigarette burns, and bruises. The boy spent a week on a ventilator in an Alabama hospital as a result of those injuries.

Zander’s entire recovery was documented on social media.
