SHAMOKIN — During their arraignments Tuesday afternoon on new charges — including an open count of criminal homicide in connection with the alleged beating of 3-year-old Arabella Parker that led to her death Friday — Jahrid J. Burgess and Samantha Jo Delcamp lashed out at police and the county district attorney while proclaiming their innocence and blaming each other for inflicting the child’s numerous injuries.

Delcamp, 24, of Sunbury, and formerly of Trevorton, and her former 19-year-old boyfriend, Burgess, of Trevorton, were arraigned individually by Magisterial District Judge John Gembic III, who denied them bail due to the addition of the criminal homicide charge.
