Two Oklahoma City parents have been charged with second-degree murder after their three-month-old baby died weighing only THREE pounds.
Doctors from the Southwest Medical Center had informed the police of the underweight baby, informing the authorities that little Nicole had been a victim of severe neglect.
“They said the child was so thin you could actually see her ribs through her skin,” said Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow in a Daily Mail report. The baby was healthy at birth, weighing 6 lbs., 8 oz., said doctors.
The baby was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Oklahoma City Police initially charged the pair three counts of neglect then with second-degree murder on June 5.
