Investigators gathered evidence and last week arrested two adults in connection to the incident. Sheriff Michael Wilder told WFIE that the baby died of starvation. The child was just shy of turning 3-months-old.

Deputies charged Caylin Opal Marie Monroe, 23, and Jakob Chance Scott, 22, with murder and neglect of a dependent resulting in death. Authorities did not detail the relationship between the two adults and the victim.

They are both being held in Warrick County Jail without bond.
