Two people were arrested in Washington state Saturday for the murder of a 10-week-old they were babysitting.
Baby Jazon Gregory was found dead on Feb. 17 with evidence of “gross negligence” from her caretakers, Redmond Police Department said.
The child had been left in the care of two adult friends of the child’s mother while she was out of state, according to police.
The death was ruled a homicide by the King County Medical Examiner’s Office.
The accused, who weren’t identified, were slapped with charges of second degree murder, and are booked at the King County Correctional Facility.
“The death of an infant child impacts everyone in our community. I’m proud of our officers and detectives who worked on this difficult case as we seek to provide justice for Jazon and his family,” said Redmond Police Chief Darrell Lowe in the statement.
