PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) - A Pueblo couple faces criminal charges in the death of their 2-year-old foster daughter.

Police say the girl died early Wednesday, almost a week after she was taken to the hospital after a reported fall down the stairs. Police believe child abuse contributed to the death of Chassie Pietrolungo.

The Pueblo Chieftain reports (https://bit.ly/YXDqvL ) that 23-year-old Sarah Finn has been charged with child abuse resulting in serious bodily injury. Thirty-six-year-old Paul Finn has been charged with withholding proper medical care.

Authorities tell the paper that those charges may be upgraded now that the girl has died.
