Couple Stunned After They’re Charged With Murder in Death of 10-Month-Old
[ VIDEO ] Michigan couple has been charged with murder for allegedly starving their 10-month-old daughter to death. Seth Welch and his wife, Tatiana, both 27, stand accused of starving their infant daughter, Mary. She was found dead in their home near Grand Rapids on August 2. Seth’s jaw dropped when the judge read off the charges and Tatiana sobbed uncontrollably during the hearing. An autopsy revealed the cause of Mary’s death was malnutrition and dehydration due to neglect by adult caregivers.
"The couple told police that they didn't seek medical help for the child for religious reasons and for fears of Child Protective Services."
"... the couple were aware that Mary was skinny and was low in weight for at least a month before the child died."
