GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- (WXYZ) -- The parents of a 10-month-old girl who died of malnutrition and dehydration in western Michigan have been charged with felony murder and first-degree child abuse.
Seth Welch and Tatiana Fusari were charged Monday in the death of their daughter.
Court records allege the Kent County 27-year-olds admitted their daughter had been skinny and underweight for at least a month. Records say the parents didn't seek medical help for religious reasons, fear of having Child Protective Services called and a lack of trust in medical services.
The parents were held without bond.
