The parents of a 3-month-old child who died last year were arrested on homicide charges Friday after a yearlong investigation, the Visalia Police Department said.

Daniel Ramirez, 29, and Angela Jimenez, 28, were booked into the Tulare County Jail after being arrested following an interview at the Police Department.

On Oct. 12, 2014, Ramirez and Jimenez brought their injured child to Kaweah Delta Hospital in Visalia, police said. The injuries were so severe that the child had to be immediately airlifted to Valley Children’s Hospital and placed on life support.

Four days later, the child died of the injuries. Violent crimes detectives started an investigation.

Police said Friday that detectives believe there are witnesses who can help, and anyone with information should contact detective Josh Pena at 559-713-4156.
