Guam - The parents of a 14-month-old toddler who died from malnutrition and pneumonia pleaded not guilty in the Superior Court of Guam today. Mary Rojas and Ray Anthony Hocog are charged with manslaughter, negligent homicide and child abuse for the death of their daughter. 

The couple is accused of starving her to death as she weighed less when she died than when she was born last year.

The couple waived their right to a speedy trial and are scheduled to appear back in court to find out when they will go to trial on September 27 before Judge Elizabeth Barrett Anderson.  Rojas and Hocog remain behind bars on $100,000 cash bail each.
