BENNETTSVILLE, S.C. (AP) _ Marlboro County Coroner Tim Brown says an autopsy has found a 3-year-old girl died from complications of an untreated urinary tract infection as well as neglect and several injuries from abuse.

Brown released the results of the autopsy on Edna Hunt this week.

The child's mother, 25-year-old Atelia Hunt, and her 29-year-old boyfriend, Mike Huckabee Jr., are charged with homicide by child abuse.

Investigators say the girl had been abused for some time and had bruises on her body and burns on her private areas before she died at a hospital on Oct. 6.
