 A mother and her fiance in Louisiana have been charged in the death of a 2-year-old girl earlier this week.

The Denham Springs Police Department told news outlets that 23-year-old Kelsey Barth has been charged with negligent homicide.

Twenty-two-year-old Shane Posey has been charged with first-degree murder.

Police were called to a report of a child found unresponsive Friday. The child was taken to Our Lady of the Lake Hospital with head injuries and died Monday from her injuries.

Her name has not been released.

It was not known if Kelsey and Posey have attorneys yet who could comment on the charges.
