State Police say the mother and stepfather of a ten year old Stockton Springs girl were arrested just after 5 p.m. and both were charged with murder.
The charges stem from the death of ten year old Marrissa Kennedy who died at the condominium that the family was staying at.
Charged with murder are 51 year old Julio Carrillo and his 33 year old wife, Sharon Carrillo. Both were arrested at the State Police offices in Bangor, where they had been interviewed by detectives. The two were taken to the Waldo County Jail in Belfast and will likely appear in court in Belfast, either Tuesday or Wednesday.
One of the adults had called for an ambulance about 2:30 Sunday afternoon for an unresponsive child. The girl was dead when first responders arrived and State Police detectives were called to investigate the death.
The family had been staying at a condo at 7 Harbor View Drive, which is owned by the mother's parents. There were two other young children in the home and the Maine Department of Health and Human Services took custody of them Sunday. The other children are ages one and two.
An autopsy was conducted today by the State Medical Examiner's Office which determined the death to be a homicide. Working with the Maine Attorney General's Office, detectives were authorized to arrest the couple late this afternoon.
