An Arkansas couple has been charged with murder after their 2-year-old son died after allegedly being left in a hot car with their three other children, authorities said.

Jacksonville, Ark., police said they responded to a report of child abuse Sunday, July 7, after a 3-year-old child was taken to Arkansas Children’s Hospital in Little Rock for “urgent treatment.” The child’s parents, Justin and Deja Rollins, were arrested, police said.

During the investigation, Jacksonville police say they discovered the couple’s four other children, ages 2, 4, 7 and 10, were locked in a car in the hospital parking lot. Justin and Deja allegedly “were uncooperative in providing the location” of the other children, according to the police department.

According to a news release from the city of Little Rock, the city Police Department was dispatched to the hospital, where the other four children were suffering from heat exhaustion. The youngest child, Jay’Dien Rollins, died the next day, the city said.

Justin and Deja Rollins were subsequently charged with aggravated murder by Little Rock authorities. They also face five counts of domestic violence, five counts of neglect, five counts of endangering a minor, one count of obstructing governmental action and one count of animal cruelty after Jacksonville police said they found a malnourished dog after searching the couple’s home.

It is unclear whether Justin or Deja have filed motions or hired an attorney. Both are in the Pulaski County Jail and have been denied bond, according to jail records.
