Parents heading to trial over daughter's rotten teeth

Parents heading to trial over daughter's rotten teeth

The parents of a Northampton County girl, who investigators say had severe and possibly life-threatening tooth decay, are heading to trial.

All charges were held for court Tuesday during preliminary hearings for Ken Wanamaker and Jessica Hoffman.

They are accused of ignoring months of warnings from their daughter's dentist.

The dentist reportedly told police it was the worst case of dental disease he'd ever seen and that it could kill the child.

Wanamaker told us the dentist never said the issue was serious.
