Guam - 28-year-old Shawn Cruz and 24-year-old Victoria Siaotong were arraigned in the Superior Court of Guam this morning.  The two are being represented by defense attorney Howard Trapp. The grand jury handed down an indictment charging them with negligent homicide, child abuse and leaving a child unattended in a motor vehicle, all as third degree felonies. In court today they pleaded not guilty.  The Yigo couple allegedly forget their son in the car parked outside their home. Court documents state they took their three other children ages seven, three, and one out of car after running errands and assumed the other had taken the infant out of the vehicle. Nearly two hours later, they found Tyler still in the car, breathing but whimpering and with obvious burns to his skin and foaming at the mouth. The couple allegedly opted not to call 911 or take the infant to the hospital. Fifteen minutes later, the infant stopped breathing and they called 911. Cruz and Siaotong are scheduled to appear before Superior Court Judge Anita Sukola on Monday for a criminal trial setting.
