WASHINGTON, DC (WDAM) - The U.S. Marshals are looking for a New Albany couple.

Authorities say Ramon and Janet Barreto have been charged with manslaughter – in the death of the two-year-old girl they adopted.  The Barretos are also wanted for several counts of child neglect and endangerment involving the abuse of other children they adopted. 

Authorities add the Barretos have ties to California, Florida, Texas and Mexico as well as north Mississippi – so they could be anywhere.

If you have any information as to the whereabouts of Ramon and Janet Barreto, please call the U.S. Marshals Service Communications Center at 1-800-336-0102.
