SPRINGVILLE, NY - The 16-year-old teen charged with the death of a toddler pleaded not guilty in court Friday.

The teen, Dylan Schumaker, is charged with murder in the second degree as an adult. He took the not guilty plea and is being held without bail.

Schumaker is accused of beating Austin Smith to death Tuesday night while in his care at a home on Cochrane Street in Springville.

Austin would have turned two on Saturday.

The Sheriff's office says Schumaker lived at the home with his parents and his 19-year old girlfriend, who is Austin's mother.
She had left the boy there with him while she went to work.

His family was in court with the mother of the child on Friday.
