MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) – Jorge and Carmen Barahona, accused of brutally killing and beating their adopted daughter, are scheduled to appear in court Friday.

The Barahonas pleaded not guilty to murder charges after their daughter, Nubia, was found partially decomposed in the back of her father's truck along I-95 in 2011. Her brother, Victor, survived after being doused with a toxic chemical.

The Barahonas will be in court Friday. The state is seeking the death penalty.

Several trial dates have been pushed back. Jorge Barahona also faces attempted murder charges in West Palm Beach. A judge denied his request to move that trial to Miami.

Meanwhile, the state agreed to a $5 million settlement with the boy. He received $1.25 million, but the rest was to come from the Legislature.
