VAIL, Colo. (AP) - A judge says there is enough evidence for prosecutors to move forward with their case against an Avon couple charged in the death of their infant daughter.

The Vail Daily reports (https://goo.gl/4HXgZM ) Patrick Williams and Lossie Thomas are charged with two felony counts of child abuse in the June 9 death of 6-month-old Paris Belle Williams. The case was advanced after a preliminary hearing last week.

Dr. Robert A. Kurtzman says the baby died from pneumonia and was underweight, dehydrated, suffered from staph and E. coli infections and had sores on her body.

Defense attorneys say Williams and Thomas are overwhelmed, working parents with two other children. They say no pattern of conduct indicated the kind of criminal neglect that would lead to the baby’s death.
