Parents Face Neglect Charges

1-25-06 - Two days after their infant child died, an Ardmore couple has been charged with child neglect. 23-year-old Ricky Don Moore and 18-year-old Christina Upton were arrested around 7pm Wednesday night.

The 9-month-old boy's grandmother rushed him to the hospital on Monday morning. He didn't have a pulse.

Although police aren't saying exactly what led to the charges, there were questions surrounding when the family could have sought help for the child, and if the parents waited too long. Police are still waiting on the medical examiner's report.
