SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – A Reeds Spring couple accused in the death of their baby are to be arraigned in Stone County Circuit Court on July 6.
They are charged with second-degree murder in child abuse and endangering the welfare of a child.
The date was set after the pair waived their preliminary hearings Tuesday.
Investigators say the 13-month-old son of Joshua Jackson, 39, and his wife Bambi Jackson, 33, was found severely malnourished in his crib in January, and later died. He weighed only 10 pounds at the time.
Pending trial, the Jacksons are free on $50,000 bond each.
