A man charged in the death of 5-year-old Jayda Canada has pleaded not guilty.
Deshaun Trombone, 25, faces a list of charges including child endangerment causing death, neglect, 17 violations of no contact orders, and much more. At last count, he faces 39 charges, totaling up to $701,500 in cash-only bonds.
Trombone was in court Wednesday morning for an arraignment and pleaded not guilty on all charges.
In Oct. 2014, Jayda Canada went into cardiac arrest in her mother’s apartment after ingesting a fatal amount of morphine, one of the many drugs within her reach. Her one year old sister, who also had traces of drugs in her system, was taken into DHS custody.
The girl’s mother, Tionne Bloodsaw, 24, also faces charges in the death. She turned herself in and was arrested in November but posted bond early in 2015. Her trial was set to start on May 11 but it has been delayed until October 12 of this year.
Trombone is due back in court for a pre-trial hearing on June 11 and his next trial date is set for July 13 & July 29, 2015.
