Couple Arrested For Murder Of Their 5-Yr-Old Daughter Due To Malnutrition And Dehydration

A couple has been detained and charged for murder after their under-fed five-year-old daughter who weighed half a stone died from dehydration and mal-nourishment.

Jerrail Mickens, 31, and Porscha Mickens, 29, who live near Buford, Georgia, US took their daughter Kylie Mickens to hospital on June 7.

Staff at Northeast Georgia Medical Center Braselton contacted the police about the child who was unresponsive due to her condition and low weight.

She was then flown to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta - Scottish Rite Hospital.

Cops launched an investigation the next day after Kiley died.

The four-month probe included interviews, a search of the Mickens’ home and an autopsy on Kylie.

The autopsy in early October found Kylie died from dehydration and malnutrition due to medical neglect.

Her death was considered a murder and her parents were arrested.
