Dad arrested for battering 4-year-old son; no mention of mother (Underwood, Indiana)

Is CHRISTOPHER A. BRUCK a single father? Notice that the assault took place at "Bruck's home" (not the "parents' home") and that there is zero mention of the mother here or elsewhere. What happened to Mom? Is this a custody/visitation situation? Is the mother deceased? If so, from natural causes? Does Dad have a history of domestic violence/child abuse? Lots of unanswered questions raised here.
