CARTERSVILLE, Ga. (AP) - A mother and her boyfriend have been charged in the death of a 1-year-old girl.

Bartow County Sheriff’s Sgt. Jonathan Rogers said 25-year-old Brandy Ann Boyd and 24-year-old Austin Levi Payne face counts of first-degree child cruelty and aggravated assault.

Authorities said the child was not breathing Tuesday when she arrived at Cartersville Medical Center. She died in the emergency room.

Rogers said a medical examination showed the child had signs of physical injuries and abuse.

Boyd and Payne were being held in jail without bond Friday. It was not clear whether they had attorneys.
