Two psychologists were also indicted for failing to report the suspected abuse.
An autopsy report released in the case stated that the cause of death for Tamiyah Audain was undetermined.
However, the report says “The contribution of possible neglect cannot be ruled out in this case.”
Child welfare investigators said that the child lost a large amount of weight in the months leading up to her death last September and had pressure sores on her body.
