The parents of a 4-month-old are in custody after the girl was found dead Tuesday morning in the Hyde Park neighborhood.

The 4-month-old was taken to a local hospital where she was pronounced deceased.

Wednesday morning, police said the baby's cause of death was "chronic abuse" and arrested her parents, but said warrants were taken under advisement pending further investigation.
