MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A Brooklyn Park couple is charged with murder in connection with death of a gravely malnourished foster child.

The Star Tribune reports 33-year-old Sherrie Dirk and 31-year-old Bryce Dirk were indicted late Thursday on charges of first- and second-degree murder. The charges also include allegations of child abuse, endangerment, neglect and "malicious punishment."

Neither Sherrie Dirk nor Bryce Dirk has attorneys listed for them in court records.

Authorities say Brooklyn Park police found the girl unresponsive and wrapped in sheets after being called to the home when her father noticed she was not breathing.
