Dusan Jenkins, 34, and Latoya Walters, 34, were arrested and are facing charges of criminally negligent homicide, reckless endangerment, risk of injury to a minor and giving a false statement. Both Jenkins and Walters turned themselves in to police after being notified of active arrest warrants.
Both parents posted bond Thursday. Walters’ bond was $10,000 and Jenkins’ was $15,000.
