Starved Baby Found: Infant Dies In Florida As Parents Feast On All-You-Can-Eat Buffet – http://inq.cm/1xyCc6K
- The parents of a 22-day-old baby girl found starved to death last week were charged with first-degree murder on Tuesday after Florida police accused them of neglecting the infant.
Ruby Stephens, 23, and her husband Ray Stephens, 48, were visiting relatives in Lakeland, Florida, from their hometown in Tennyson, Indiana, when they called 911 upon discovering their daughter unresponsive in their car on Dec. 23, Reuters reported.
The couple were eating at the local Golden Corral restaurant at the time, according to a statement from police.
Betsey Key Stephens was declared dead at the hospital, with the medical examiner finding the infant died of malnutrition as a result of starvation. Police told a news conference the baby weighed just 4 pounds and 1 ounce at the time of her death, well below the average weight of about 8 pounds, according to Reuters. She had lost about 2.5 pounds since her birth.
“She suffered tremendously over the 22 days that she was alive,” said Mike Link, assistant chief of Lakeland Police, describing pictures of the child as “absolutely horrible.”
