Rodica and Emil Radita were charged in February after their 15-year-old son Alex was found dead, severely emaciated and confined to his bed in a Citadel Drive home. He weighed less than 40 pounds.
A judge denied the couple bail in a Calgary courtroom Monday.
Court documents showed his parents had a history of not treating the boy for diabetes.
Five grown children who also lived in the home were not charged.
