MOBILE, AL (AP) - A 22-year-old woman is being held in Alabama on $206,000 bond after pleading not guilty to charges of abusing her common-law husband's two young children, whose bodies were dumped in woods.

An attorney entered the plea for Heather Leavell-Keaton at a bond hearing Tuesday in Mobile. She had been brought back to Alabama from Kentucky. Her husband, 27-year-old John DeBlase, is also being held in Mobile on murder charges in the deaths of the children. His bond was set earlier at $500,000.

Remains believed to be those of his 3-year-old son Chase and 4-year-old daughter Natalie have been found in Mississippi and Alabama. Authorities say DeBlase directed them to the wooded areas where the bodies were dumped.
