GLOUCESTER, Va. – A judge has found a Gloucester County couple guilty of felony neglect and abuse in the death of their infant son.
Media outlets reported that Gloucester Circuit Judge William Hamblen determined Friday there was insufficient evidence for homicide charges against Brian Gore and his wife, Shannon Gore.
Authorities found the 7-month-old boy's remains under a shed at the couple's residence in 2011 while investigating a separate case involving their daughter, who was 6 years old at the time.
Sheriff's deputies discovered the daughter in a makeshift cage while investigating a burglary report.
Brian Gore and Shannon Gore each pleaded guilty in 2013 to child abuse and malicious wounding in the earlier case. Both are serving 30-year sentences.
Their sentencing in their son's death is set for July.
