HOUSTON (AP) — Authorities say a Houston couple is in custody following the death of a baby who suffered broken bones, bite marks and lacerations.

Police announced Wednesday that 23-year-old Ginyear Jones is charged with two counts of injury to a child causing serious bodily injury. Her boyfriend, 23-year-old John Caldwell, is facing one count of the same charge.

Investigators say the maternal grandmother of 13-month-old Melony Jones went to visit the baby at the Houston motel where she was living with her mother and Caldwell. The grandmother discovered the child had serious injuries and later called 911. Melony died of her injuries Sunday.

Jones is being held on $100,000 bond while Caldwell is being held without bond.

Online jail records did not indicate attorneys for the two.
