LUFKIN, Texas (AP) - The trial for an East Texas man and woman accused in the starvation death of their 2-month-old son is set to begin.

The Lufkin Daily News (https://bit.ly/1zeIsCr ) reports the joint trial of 19-year-old DeQuisha Jackson and 20-year-old Isaiah Tolliver is set to begin Monday. Both are charged with murder in the death of their son, Imauri Jackson.

In October 2013, someone at the home where the two were staying with a relative called 911 to report that the baby wasn’t breathing. The infant was pronounced dead at a Lufkin hospital.

According to an arrest affidavit, the baby was delivered at term and weighed 6.7 pounds. At the time of death, he weighed 5.6 pounds. An autopsy ruled the baby’s death a homicide caused by malnutrition and dehydration.
