MOUNT VERNON —The body of teenager Hana Williams, who died in her family’s backyard last year in a case that has left her adoptive parents on trial, will be exhumed so that prosecutors can attempt to confirm her age, a judge ruled Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the girl’s parents, Larry and Carri Williams, pleaded not guilty to all charges against them Wednesday in Skagit County Superior Court. The couple is accused of abusing Hana to death and also abusing another of their adopted children.
