The mom and dad accused of killing their 18-month-old son, faced a judge Monday morning.

Anthony Phelps, 25, and Anika McCorvey-Phelps, 22, both pled not guilty to multiple charges and the judge set bond at $450,000.

Cleveland Police arrested them this past weekend.

The little boy, Abel McCorvey-Phelps, died on July 21 at Rainbow.

His parents told police he choked on food in their Olivet Avenue home, but the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner says the toddler was beaten to death.
