SACRAMENTO – A Sacramento couple were arrested after their 3-month-old son died Saturday.
Sacramento Police Department spokesperson Michelle Gigante said firefighters were dispatched to an apartment on the 2900 block of North Meadows Dr. at 6:11 p.m. Thursday in response to a call for medical aid. Responders took Tyrese Smith to an area hospital with undisclosed injuries, but due to his critical condition, rerouted him to UC Davis Medical Center.
Detectives responded to UC Davis and began an investigation into Tyrese's condition, interviewing his mother, Ashleigh Smith, 27, and father Terry Scott, 19. Both were subsequently booked into Sacramento County Jail on felony child abuse/neglect charges Thursday night, Gigante said.
