Doctor Pleads Not Guilty In Child Starvation Case

The physician for a 14-year-old Dayton girl who had cerebral palsy and died of starvation pleaded not guilty Wednesday to her alleged role in the child's death last year. 50-year-old Margaret Edwards is due back in court on August 28th to face charges of failing to report abuse or neglect in the death of Makayla Norman. Prosecutors say Edwards failed to report the girl's starvation death at the hands of her mother and home caregivers, who have also been charged.
