Midvale parents accused of underfeeding their babies
MIDVALE, UTAH —
(KUTV)- Antoine Torres Scott and Andrea Kendrick took their two children to the Greenwood Health Center in Salt Lake County for a routine check-up in September when the doctor was stunned by the health conditions of the children.
The kids, 1-year-old and 3-months-old, were “profoundly malnourished,” and the doctor ordered the couple to take the infant and baby to the hospital.
When the doctor discovered the parents had not taken the children as he requested, he called police and Division of Child and Family Services (DCFS) to take the children into custody.
KUTV talked to Scott, who says he was only following the orders of their doctor. Scott claims doctors told he and his girlfriend to feed the children only 2% milk.
Kendrick and Scott are now charged with two counts of child abuse.
