LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. (WDRB) – Kentucky State Police charged an Anderson County couple with the criminal abuse of their infant child on Dec. 10.

Billie J. Combs, 20, and Aaron J. Hilbert, 21, both of Lawrenceburg, were charged and arrested after police say they neglected to provide proper nutrition and medical care to their ten month old child.
 
Kentucky State Police began their investigation in July when the infant's pediatrician sent the child to the Emergency Room due to failing health following an examination. The child was removed from its parents care shortly thereafter and placed in state custody.
 
Combs and Gilbert were each charged with one count of second degree criminal abuse. The couple is being held in the Shelby County Detention Center.
 
The Kentucky State Police Frankfort Post is continuing to investigate the case.
