PARK HILLS, Mo. (AP) - An eastern Missouri husband and wife are facing charges for the death of a 3-month-old foster child.

The Daily Journal newspaper in Park Hills, Missouri (http://bit.ly/16vOdkA ) reports that 23-year-old Tyler Finley and his 22-year-old wife, Olivia Finley, of rural Park Hills are charged with child abuse resulting in death.
