A Newark woman accused of selling her baby and the Philadelphia man she allegedly sold the infant to for $15,000 are set to go to trial.

Thirty-three-year-old Bridget Wismer and 54-year-old John Gavaghan are charged with conspiracy and dealing in children. The News Journal of Wilmington reports that both have pleaded not guilty.

The trial is set for Feb. 7.

Wismer has said the criminal charges against her are the result of a misunderstanding by authorities of her relationship with Gavaghan.
