AMBRIDGE, Pa. (AP) - Police have charged a couple with endangering a 5-month-old girl found dead when they ran out of gas driving her to a hospital.

Ambridge police have charged 27-year-old Tariq Taylor and 21-year-old Katreona Matthews because they believe the baby died in in that municipality long before the parents called 911 after running out of gas in Baden on Saturday.

Autopsy results are pending, and police say more charges could be filed depending on how the child died.

Police say the couple told investigators the child wasn’t breathing so they tried to get to the hospital. But Ambridge police believe the child had been dead for about eight hours before that happened.

Taylor was already jailed on an unrelated warrant before being charged Wednesday. Matthews has been charged but not arrested. Online court records don’t list defense attorneys.
