DOVER, Del. (AP) - Law enforcement authorities in Delaware say a mother and father in Delaware have been charged in the death of their 16-month-old boy.

Delaware State News reports 25-year-old Antonio Hughes and 26-year-old Chanel E. Green were charged Friday after a two-year investigation.

The boy's death in April 2017 was ruled a homicide caused by blunt force trauma associated with child abuse.
