Oklahoma parents arrested after malnourished infant dies
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Police in Oklahoma City say the parents of a 5-month-old boy were arrested and charged with child neglect after the severely malnourished infant died at a hospital.
Twenty-eight-year-old Secoya Angelee McNeary was being held Monday at the Oklahoma County jail. She's also charged with neglect by a caretaker and failure to provide. Thirty-seven-year-old Sir Tramane Antoine Neal was being held on just the child neglect charge.
Online jail records don't indicate whether they have attorneys.
Investigators say the two took their son, Sir D. Neal, to a hospital Friday. An arrest affidavit says the boy was malnourished and suffered a heart attack. The cause and manner of death had not been determined Monday by the state medical examiner's office.
The baby's twin also was found to be malnourished and was hospitalized and placed in state custody.
