TBI officials arrested a Greene County couple on Friday for the murder of their infant daughter last September.

Stephen and Pooja Jennings, both 24, are charged with first-degree murder and aggravated child neglect in the death of their eight-month-old daughter, Abby.

TBI says emergency crews responded to Pooja Jennings' home in September, and found Abby unresponsive with bruises on her body. She died at a hospital the next day.

TBI says witnesses told them Abby had the bruises when she returned from a visit to her father. Pooja did not seek medical treatment for the child after the visit.

The couple is married, but separated. Both are in the Greene County jail on a $1 million bond each.
