SCRANTON — A man has withdrawn a guilty plea in connection with child abuse case in Lackawanna County.

In November 2013, Wayne Kichar of Jessup pleaded guilty to simple assault for injuring his 10-year-old son. 

The boy told investigators that Kichar threw him on a steel chair because he took out a bag of garbage that was not full.

After withdrawing his plea, a judge revoked Kichar’s bail.

Kichar is also suspected of causing a crash in Dunmore that killed a brother and sister from New York in 2011.

Police filed charges against Kichar in that case last year.
