Reno Couple Pleads “Not Guilty” to Murdering Five Year Old Girl

The Reno couple charged in the murder of a five-year-old girl has pleaded not guilty. Trial has been set for April 6th in Washoe District Court. 24 year old Tyler Jermaine Anderson, and 23 year old Averyauna Cheyenne Anderson, are charged in the death of Cali Anderson. The allegations are that Cali died in Reno and was taken to a Sacramento storage unit. The couple had been charged with felony child abuse, but that charge was raised to open murder. The new charges allege Cali’s death was deliberately caused by malnourishment. Open murder means they could be convicted of a range of charges from first-degree murder, which carries a maximum sentence of life without a chance of parole, to manslaughter.
