Conlan Armour, 30, and Grace Ann Brooks, 56, were both charged with failure to report child abuse and child neglect.

Police said they were both charged with child neglect “in the form of culpable negligence due to their lack of willingness to protect the baby.”

Armour was arrested Oct. 22 and released the next day on $4,500 bond. Brooks was arrested Oct. 23 and released on the same day, also on a $4,500 bond.

If convicted on both counts, Armour and Brooks could face up to 20 years in prison. Armour’s arraignment is set for Nov. 12 and Brooks’ has yet to be scheduled.

On July 1, baby Cayden Armour was rushed to Joe DiMaggio hospital after his mother, Inakesha Armour, allegedly threw him in their Riviera Isles community lake and then fished him out several minutes later. He remains in the hospital, unconscious and on a ventilator, according police.

The baby’s mother told police she was suffering from postpartum depression and hadn’t been taking her medication.

Inakesha Armour was charged with two counts of attempted murder because investigators said this isn’t the first time she tried to kill her baby. A month before, she told police at the time, she had fed the baby adult cough syrup and tried to smother him with a pillow.

On Aug. 1, she was released on a $50,000 bond.

The baby’s father was granted custody of his son shortly after the near drowning but it’s not clear now whether the custody had changed.
