Butte County Parents Charged in Son’s Death Plead Not Guilty

Two Chico parents arrested in the death of their adopted son have pleaded not guilty to charges of murder and child endangerment. The Chico ER reports a preliminary hearing is scheduled for October for Dr. James Yhip and nurse Edelyn Yhip. The two were taken into custody in July, three months after the death of their 2 year old adopted son. Investigators say the boy died in April, allegedly from blunt force trauma to the head.
