Couple Charged in Death of Baby Son

A man and woman are behind bars after being indicted by a Bexar County Grand Jury for the death of their baby son.

“We were called out to a home near Converse, where we found a baby who had obviously suffered from malnourishment… was just in really bad shape” James Keith with the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office told KTSA News, describing how the case began back in December.

“The parents of this child failed to give this child the proper care and medical attention that he needed” Keith said, adding “According to them, they had failed to get him vaccinated, and a doctor wouldn’t see him. We don’t buy that story, and the grand jury didn’t either.”

Both Marquita Johnson and Qwalion Busby face charges in the death of their son. The couple’s other children are now in the care of Child Protective Services.
