A 38-year-old man charged with his wife with child abuse in the death of their severely malnourished 15-month-old daughter has pleaded not guilty.
 
Ernest Ingram entered the plea Monday in Maricopa County Superior Court.
 
Phoenix police responded to the couple's home on July 10 after receiving a call from the mother, Denise Snow-Ingram, that the child wasn't breathing. The infant later died at a hospital.
 
According to police, the parents said the child hadn't seen a doctor since birth due to their religious beliefs.
 
Police said the girl weighed less than 9 pounds and suffered from "profound malnutrition," along with numerous bone fractures.

The Ingrams and their seven children live in a small two bedroom apartment near downtown Phoenix.  The children are now in Child Protective Service's custody.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
