COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

A Columbus mother and father appeared in court Wednesday, Sept. 3, accused of dealing meth out of the home where their baby was found unresponsive.

Helen Price and Stephen Cambron were in recorder's court Wednesday morning, Sept. 3. Both pleaded not guilty to multiple drug charges.

A Columbus investigator testified that they found more than 48 grams of meth, 15 pills of schedule three drugs, and other drug related objects in a shed outside the home. He said Price told them she had been selling meth for a couple of months.

Investigators also found a number of drug related objects inside the home.

Both Price and Cambron were charged with trafficking meth, and were not given a bond for the charge.

Price was given a $36,000 bond for additional drug charges. Both cases were bound over to Superior Court. 

Police were called to the home when Cambron and Price's nine-month-old daughter, Hailey, was found not breathing. When police arrived at the house, they found Hailey dead.

Police are pursuing the child's death as a separate case.
