CLEBURNE (AP) - A North Texas husband and wife have been charged with felony injury to a child after their 4-year-old adopted son was found dead at their home.

Cleburne police arrested David and Angel Cook after an autopsy report released Monday indicated Buddy Cook’s death was a homicide. The body was discovered March 22.

Earlier Child Protective Services affidavits said Buddy apparently died of dehydration and malnutrition and the parents didn’t seek medical attention.

Bond has been set at $75,000 for each parent. The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday did not immediately provide information on whether the couple remained in custody. An attorney for the Cooks didn’t immediately respond to messages.

Seven other children removed from the house after the boy’s death remain in foster care.
