DILLON, S.C. (AP) - Officials say the parents and grandparents of a 2-month-old boy have been arrested after the infant died in a hospital.

Multiple news outlets report the infant was taken to a hospital last week for an illness and died days later at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. Authorities say the child’s parents, Victoria Ford and Kelly McInnis, and grandparents, John and Geraldine Ford, were arrested Sunday and charged with homicide by child abuse and unlawful neglect of a child.

Arrest warrants say the family neglected to provide adequate health care and food for the baby, resulting in his death.

All four people are being held at the Dillon County Detention Center and are awaiting a bond hearing before a circuit court judge next week.
