They're both charged with felony murder and cruelty to children in the first degree after they brought their unresponsive daughter to Northeast Georgia Medical Center Braselton in June. Deputies say the girl weighed just seven pounds when her parents brought her to the hospital for treatment.
The girl's official cause of death was listed as dehydration and malnutrition due to medical neglect. The manner of her death, investigators said, is homicide.
Jerrail and Porscha Mickens were held without bond at the Hall County Jail.
