Posted:

MAQUOKETA (KWWL) -- Andrew Holdgrafer has pleaded not guilty to child endangerment charges in Jackson County District Court.

Andrew and his wife, 29-year-old Danielle Holdgrafer, are the adoptive parents of 4-year-old Collin. Collin drowned in a bathtub on June 12.

Holdgrafer entered a written plea and requested his right to a speedy trial, which has been set for Sept. 13.

Prosecutors claim 32-year-old  Andrew admitted to investigators that he knew Collin was being abused and did not take any action.

Danielle is charged with first-degree murder in Collin's death for allegedly dunking his head under water while giving him a bath.

Danielle is scheduled to be arraigned on Friday.
