The parents of a 3-day-old girl who died early Sunday have been charged with her murder.

Police in Columbus, Ga., arrested 24-year-old Albert Debelbot and his 23-year-old wife, Ashley, on Monday afternoon. The couple were taken into custody after doctors determined the baby died from blunt-force injuries.

Authorities said McKenzy Debelbot was born Thursday.

The exact cause of death was not determined. The infant's remains were sent to a state medical examiner for an autopsy.
