Oregon couple arrested after baby dies of starvation

The Associated Press

ROSEBURG, Ore. — A Southern Oregon couple has been arrested on charges of murder by abuse after an autopsy determined their 7-week-old baby boy died of starvation.

Douglas County sheriff’s deputies said Wednesday that 27-year-old Stephen Williams Jr. and 22-year-old Amanda Hancock were arrested Tuesday at their home in Glendale.

Deputies say an ambulance was called to their home Jan. 22 to treat an infant in distress, but efforts to revive the baby were not successful.

Authorities say an autopsy was done at the state medical examiner’s office, and it determined that the baby, Data Hancock, had died of starvation.
