Prosecutors accuse two Warrick County parents of starving infant to death

Prosecutors charged two Warrick County, Indiana, parents with murder Tuesday after their infant allegedly starved to death in February.

Caylin Monroe, 23, and Jakob Scott, 22, were booked in the Warrick County jail Tuesday and charged with murder and neglect of a dependent resulting in death, both Level 1 felonies.

The Warrick County Sheriff’s Office said Monroe dialed 911 in February from the 3000 block of Honeysuckle Drive to report her baby was unresponsive. First responders determined the infant was dead at the scene, according to a sheriff’s office news release.
