Nashville-based WTVF has learned that Jason Ormonde and Colleen Delaney were arrested after being indicted by a grand jury.

Both have been charged with felony murder and aggravated child abuse in connection with death of their infant daughter.

According to Murfreesboro (Tenn.) Police officials, the infant suffered broken ribs and was found to be malnourished.
