The mother of 3-year-old Emilliano Terry on Friday morning pleaded not guilty to 10 counts related to her son’s death.
Charges against Camilia Terry, 20, include aggravated murder, felonious assault, child endangering, tampering with evidence and gross abuse of a corpse.
Terry’s defense attorney entered the plea on her behalf. Bond was then set at $2 million.
Prosecutors say on November 25, Terry led police on a massive search for Emilliano, knowing she had placed his body in the garbage days earlier.
Terry was arrested the following day after the toddler’s body was found at a waste treatment facility in Oakwood Village.
On Friday, Camilia Terry’s Father, Cornelius Baker, spoke for the family.
“You know, it’s kind of hard. This is my daughter, this is my blood. I don’t really know what the problem was, I’m just here to show that I do have love for her,” he said.
A custody hearing also determined Emilliano’s half-brothers, a 5-year-old and a 5-month-old, will be placed with paternal relatives.
A trial date has been scheduled for December 14.
