Local couple arrested for endangering baby's life Infant found dehydrated and severely malnourished Wednesday, January 30, 2008 An Auburn couple is in custody in the Placer County Jail on charges that they did not feed and properly care for their baby girl. Abraham David Mark, 49, and his wife, Monica Sue Mark, 38, were arrested Tuesday afternoon by Auburn Police officers and charged with one count each of felony cruelty to a child. Sgt. Victor Pecoraro said a special allegation will be added to the charges because the victim was under 5 years of age. The couple's 8-week-old baby girl was found by Placer County Child Protective Services to be dehydrated and severely malnourished, Pecoraro said. "We got involved and did the criminal investigation," he said. "The baby is out of the hospital now and is in the custody of the county." He said the baby lost about two pounds since her birth. "She was in the 4-pound range and her skin was very loose," Pecoraro said. "She was emaciated." The Marks were arrested Tuesday afternoon at their Racetrack Street apartment. Both are being held on $250,000 bail each. http://www.auburnjournal.com/articles/2008/01/30/news/top_stories/05endanderedbaby30.txt What do you think? The ages are incorrect.
