A man and a woman were arrested and charged Monday in the death of their one-year-old son.
Police said that on the morning of August 30, officers responded to the 2600 block of Shirley Avenue for a report of a child not breathing. Jayden Johnson was taken to Sinai Hospital where he later died.
An autopsy revealed that the child died as a result of dehydration, malnutrition and blunt force trauma.
His parents, 30-year-old Brian Johns and 26-year-old Brittley Brown, face second-degree murder charges.
