YORK COUNTY, SC – A man and woman have been arrested following a three-and-a-half-month investigation following the death of a baby girl in York County, officials announced on Wednesday.
York County detectives charged Aaron Doster and Hannah Parton with homicide by child abuse and unlawful neglect of a child.
Both Doster, 22, and Parton, 21, were arrested following an investigation into the June 23 death of Parton’s 7-week-old daughter.
Detectives, with help from the State Law Enforcement Division (SLED), charged Doster with homicide after they said he caused blunt force trauma to the head of the baby.
Doster and Parton were also charged with unlawful neglect of a child. Doster was not the father of the baby.
Both Doster and Parton are being held at the York County Detention Center.
