Trial date set for family of Arizona boy starved to death

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — A trial date has been set for the parents and grandmother of a 6-year-old boy who died after being locked in a closet and denied food. The parents, Elizabeth Archibeque and Anthony Martinez, and the grandmother, Ann Martinez, have pleaded not guilty to charges of first-degree murder, kidnapping and child abuse. They are scheduled to go on trial in August 2022. Coconino County Superior Court Judge Ted Reed set the date during a hearing in the case Friday. A new prosecutor also is taking on the case after the former one was appointed to a judgeship.
