The district attorney's office says a New Orleans couple has been charged with murder in the death of the woman's 21-month-old daughter.
District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro announced the news Monday.
A grand jury indicted 27-year-old Tyrell Reddix and 24-year-old Shawnise Sherman on October 24 with second-degree murder and cruelty to a juvenile.
But the district attorney's office says the indictment was not made public to allow law enforcement to arrest Reddix and Sherman.
Police arrested them Monday.
