LUFKIN, Texas (AP) - A coroner has determined a 2-month-old East Texas boy who at the time he died weighed a pound less than when he was born suffered malnutrition and dehydration.
Autopsy results released this week show Imauri Jackson of Lufkin weighed 6 pounds, 7 ounces at birth but dwindled to 5 pounds, 6 ounces. His death was ruled a homicide due to child neglect.
Angelina County jail records show the parents, 18-year-old Dequisha Jackson and 19-year-old Isaiah Tolliver, were being held Wednesday on murder and child endangerment charges. Online jail records don't list attorneys for the teens, whose bond is $25,000 apiece.
Lufkin police say the couple called 911 last Oct. 11 to report their son was unresponsive. He was pronounced dead at a hospital. The parents were arrested the following day.
