The Colorado Springs parents accused of beating their infant nearly to death, make their first court appearances.

Jesse Lee Kaizen and Amanda Sims were arrested Wednesday for the attempted murder of their 9-month-old daughter.

Police say the baby was admitted to Memorial Hospital July 6th with serious injuries.

The child survived, but her injuries raised red flags for police.

Kaizen and Sims are charged with attempted first degree murder.

Family members were in the courtroom for the proceedings. They tell 11 News the couple is innocent and would never hurt their daughter.

Monaca Tipton is Amanda Sims' sister. She says,"My sister is being wrongly accused because she would never hurt any of her kids, she loves her kids."

Meanwhile, Kaizen's sister Adrieanna tells 11 News, "My brother loves his kids, all of them. They're his world. He's never, ever harmed them, he hates to see them hurt."

Bond has been set for each of them at $100,000. They will be back in court later this month.
