Sara Krueger, 23, and Ryan Scott Warner, 26, were ordered to return to court Feb. 25 after Judge Michael Williams appointed lawyers to represent them, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.
They were being held without bail in the death of Kayleigh Slusher. They admitted to police that they hid the girl's body in a suitcase inside a freezer for three days, according to court documents released Tuesday.
The couple were charged with murder and assault on a child resulting in death. Neither faces allegations of sexual assault, though such charges could be added later.
