MARION COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

A pair of Marion County residents are behind bars in connection to the death of a 4 month-old infant.

Ramandeep Dhindsa, 18, and Lindsey Johnson, 18, were arrested and charged with one count of felony child neglect in connection to the Thursday incident.

Savannah Dhindsa was pronounced dead at the scene located at 28 C&S Road in the Foxworth Community when officers arrived around 3 p.m. Thursday.

“When officers arrived, the child was already deceased in the bed inside the home,” said Marion County Sheriff’s Department Investigator Jamie Singley. “It appears the two were in the bed with the child, and someone rolled over on the baby.”

According to Singley, Ramandeep is the father of Savannah, but Lindsey is just an acquaintance of his.

Officers also executed a search warrant at the home according to Singley.

“Officers found drug paraphernalia, drug residue as well as signs of drug activity at the residence,” said Singley.

“The child has been sent to Jackson for an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death,” said Marion County Coroner Norma Williamson.

The pair appeared in court Friday morning where their bond was set at $5,000 each.

The investigation is still ongoing according to Singley.
