Porsha Bole and Joshua Foster have been arrested and booked into the Madison County Jail on the charge of aggravated child abuse in relation to the investigation into their child's death. The bond is set at $60,000 for each suspect.

The child was 11 months old, and the cause of her death is still unknown pending an autopsy. According to the Madison County Sheriff's Office, additional charges are possible depending on the outcome of the autopsy, and there is no record of the Department of Human Resources ever responding to the home prior to the incident.

We are told that the parents and another family member called 911 over the weekend when the child wasn't breathing and that she was dead when the Madison County Sheriff's Office arrived. 

Porsha Bole will have her first court appearance on October 18 and Joshua Foster will be in court on November 7. Both of these will be preliminary hearings.
