LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - An Angelina County grand jury has indicted a Lufkin couple in connection to an infant's death, determining they were sleeping with it and caused its death.
Vanessa Lynn Clark, 32, and Mark Wayne Clark, 32, are each charged with child endangerment.
According to District Attorney Clyde Herrington, Lufkin Police investigators determined the couple were sleeping with an infant when it died on July 9, 2010.
The couple had not been arrested on the charge, according to district court records. Instead, it appears prosecutors decided to let a grand jury determine if they should be charged.
Each person has been in the Angelina County Jail before. Mark Clark was booked on a charge of driving with a license invalid in 2002. Vanessa Clark has theft convictions on her record.
Neither had been booked into the Angelina County Jail on the endangerment charge, as of Friday night.
Further information on the infant's death, including the age and gender of the victim, was unavailable Friday night.
