PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) --

A Panhandle couple accused of burning a baby in a methamphetamine explosion have pleaded not guilty to several charges.

Thirty-three year-old John Osborn and 31-year-old Tessa Wagy appeared in court Thursday to face charges of manufacturing
methamphetamine that led to a child being harmed, aggravated child
abuse and possessing chemicals used in the production of methamphetamine.

Their next court appearance is Nov. 18.

Investigators said Osborn was making meth in a home when the mixture exploded in his hand and covered 1-year-old Johna, who was
in her playpen.

She had burns across nearly half her body.

Investigators said Wagy rolled the girl on the floor to put out the flames and initially told officers it was a grease fire that burned the baby.
