Couple arrested in connection with Oklahoma infant’s death

Couple arrested in connection with Oklahoma infant’s death
TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Police in Tulsa have arrested a man and a woman on felony warrants in connection with the death of a five-month-old Rogers County infant early this year.
Television station KOTV reports that 28-year-old Raymond Vickers and 28-year-old Cheyenna Bates were arrested on Friday night.
The infant, Brice Vickers, was found unresponsive at a residence on February 10. He died the next day at a Tulsa hospital. The state medical examiner’s office says it was unable to determine what caused the infant’s death but that accidental suffocation could not be ruled out.
Police say Vickers and Bates were arrested during a traffic stop on a complaint of false impersonation.
Last month, Rogers County prosecutors charged them with child neglect in the case. Court records don’t list an attorney for them.
