Woman pleads innocent in New Jersey child abuse case
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

Newark, New Jersey-AP -- The aunt of a New Jersey boy whose battered body was found in a basement has made her first court appearance since her arrest.

Sherry Murphy pleaded innocent yesterday to child endangerment, kidnapping and attempted murder. No trial has been set and she remains in jail.

Seven-year-old Faheem Williams' body was found stuffed in a plastic bin at Murphy's home in January. It was a day after his twin, Raheem, and another brother, four-year-old Tyrone Hill, were found emaciated in an adjoining room.

Raheem and Tyrone survived.

Murphy also faces endangerment charges regarding three other children. Two of them are identified as her 15- and 14-year-old daughters.

Murphy's 17-year-old son has also been charged and will stand trial as an adult.
