A Stark County woman, accused of cashing in on a toddler's death by posing as her grandmother, pleaded not guilty in Alliance Municipal Court on Monday.
ONLY ON 5: I confronted a panhandler, caught on camera trying to cash in on a toddler's death -- posing as her grandma! She pleaded not guilty. Meanwhile, her alleged accomplice got an earful from the *real* grandma. Unbelievable stuff. The full story is on TV at 5:30.http://bit.ly/1MwENsK

When confronted outside the courtroom on Monday, Dalesandro declined to comment.
That not guilty plea brought Tammy Mackey, Miku’s aunt and the woman who recorded the video, to tears.
“I never got to meet my niece,” Mackey said. “And she was a beautiful little girl and I’m going to be that voice for her.”
