SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A Sacramento couple has been arrested on suspicion of felony child abuse and neglect in connection with the death of their 3-month-old son.

The Sacramento Bee reports the infant was found in critical condition after fire department officials responded to a call for aid late Thursday.

The child died at a hospital on Saturday.

The newspaper says 27-year-old Ashleigh Smith and 19-year-old Terry Scott were arrested following an investigation and booked into Sacramento County Jail.

Police say additional charges against Smith and Scott may be filed pending the outcome of the infant's autopsy.
