Muncie couple formally charges in girl's death

Posted: Updated:

MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) -- A Muncie couple has been charged with neglect of a dependent resulting in death in the death of a 5-year-old girl in their home.

The Star Press reports 29-year-old Charlene Tabb and 53-year-old Marcus Marcellus Tabb were formally charged Friday in the June 22 death of Marie Pierre. The Tabbs are being held without bond in the Delaware County Jail, where records do not indicate whether they have an attorney.

On Wednesday, two of Charlene Tabb's siblings, a 14-year-old boy and 11-year-old girl were charged in juvenile court with aggravated battery. Police said Marie was "unresponsive and not breathing" when they were called to the Tabb home and they found more than 80 abuse marks on her body.

Initial hearings are scheduled for July 8.
