PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Police say the parents of a disabled 3-year-old Philadelphia girl who died weighing just 11 pounds have been charged with murder in what authorities are calling her starvation death.
Police say 30-year-old Carlos Rivera and 27-year-old Carmen Ramirez also face counts of involuntary manslaughter, endangering the welfare of a child and criminal conspiracy in the death of Nathalyz Rivera. She was found unresponsive Monday at the family's squalid home.
The parents are in custody. It wasn't immediately clear whether they have attorneys.
Homicide Capt. James Clark said the girl hadn't seen a doctor in more than a year despite what he called "severe disabilities" that he did not detail.
The girl's twin and three other siblings are now in protective custody
