Camilia Terry pleads not guilty in death of 3-year-old son Emilliano Terry

CLEVELAND - The mother of three-year-old Emilliano Terry pleaded not guilty to multiple charges, including murder, in the boy's death Friday morning.

Camilia Terry was arraigned by video and her attorney entered the plea on her behalf.

Terry's bond has been set at $2 million and a pre-trial hearing will be held next Friday, Dec. 14.

She is charged with two counts each of aggravated murder, murder and endangering children, along with one count each of felonious assault, tampering with evidence, making false alarms and gross abuse of a corpse.

The 20-year-old mother of three was indicted Tuesday. The indictment states between Nov. 20 and Nov. 26 she purposely caused the death of Emilliano.

On Nov. 25, Camilia reported her son missing from Kossuth Park, triggering a search that included federal investigators.

One day later, the little boy's body was found at a waste processing site in Oakwood Village in a duffel bag. Camilia was arrested and then charged with the crime.

The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office has said Emilliano died from blunt force trauma to his head, torso, arms and legs.
