Two parents in New York have been charged with attempted murder after allegedly attempting to light their 1-year-old child on fire at a truck stop on May 3.

Seneca County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a report of several fires inside a Love's Travel Plaza in Tyre, New York, and took Jamie L. Avery, Jr., 28, and Lisbeth Collado, 25, into custody after they allegedly caused the fires and attempted to "light a one-year-old child on fire," according to authorities. The parents are from West Palm Beach, Florida.

The sheriff's office also said that a 4-year-old was found in the cab of a tractor-trailer in the parking lot and had apparent head injuries.

It's believed that the two are in a domestic relationship and are parents to both of the children, according to the sheriff's office.
