A California woman has been arrested for abuse of her baby daughter, along with her stepfather, causing the two-year-old girl’s death.

20-year-old Cheyenne Cobb and 47-year-old Jon Palechek were taken into custody after paramedics responded to a call for a two-year-old girl, Cobb’s daughter, not breathing.

The young child was pronounced dead at the scene.

The two were arrested for felony child abuse causing death.

Fontana Police Sgt. Kevin Goltara told the Los Angeles Times, “The upkeep of the house and the condition that the child was kept in was obviously not satisfactory. Part of that, we believe, led to the death of the child.”

No specific details as to how the child died have been released.

The investigation is ongoing.
