CANTON - The parents charged with killing their 5-year-old daughter Ashley Zhao inside their family restaurant were arraigned in court Wednesday afternoon.
Liang Zhao and Ming Ming Chen entered not guilty pleas in the murder of their 5-year-old daughter Ashley Zhao.
Both are facing six counts each: murder, two counts of endangering children, tampering with evidence, obstructing justice, and gross abuse of a corpse.
Their pretrial has been set for April 20.
A Stark County grand jury indicted Ming Ming Chen for murder of her daughter and Liang Zhao, Ashley's father, for complicity to murder.
As WKYC previously reported in January, Ashley Zhao was found dead in the family's restaurant in Jackson Township.
The parents' six-year-old daughter will remain in the temporary custody of the county.
