LAWTON, OK (TNN) - We have more information on the death of a three-year-old girl in Comanche County that we first told you about last week.
The Comanche County Sheriff’s Department says the medical examiner found the child had a tumor.
It’s up to the District Attorney on whether or not the parents will face charges.
“At this time we’re still investigating this. We’ve been talking to the medical examiner,” said Sheriff Kenny Stradley. "We’re still investigating it as to why the child didn’t get treatment or stuff like that.”
Sheriff Stradley says the parents were arrested for child neglect that resulted in death. Deputies responded to a home near Lake Lawtonka last Thursday to find the child wasn’t breathing. They say she was later pronounced dead at a hospital.
The medical examiner’s office is still trying to determine an exact cause of death.
