REDFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Authorities have filed murder charges against a woman and a man in the death of her 5-year-old daughter at a Detroit-area motel.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says the girl was found Tuesday in Redford Township, a victim of a beating. Investigators say a 3-year-old boy was physically abused.

Murder and child abuse charges were filed Thursday against 26-year-old Steffani Jones and 30-year-old Michael Lewis. It wasn’t immediately known if they have attorneys who could comment on the case.
