HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Authorities say a mother and father have been arrested following the death of their 11-month daughter in Alabama.

The Madison County Sheriff’s office says 28-year-old Joshua Lee Foster and 30-year-old Porsha Dawn Bole are each charged with aggravated child abuse.

They’re jailed with bond set at $60,000 each.

Officials say the young girl was found dead over the weekend in Hazel Green, which is north of Huntsville. Authorities haven’t released the child’s name or the suspected cause of death. An autopsy is being conducted.

Court records aren’t yet available to show whether either Foster or Bole has an attorney.
