Guam - Agents with the Guam Police Department's Criminal Investigation Division arrested a Mangilao couple for the death of their 14-month-old daughter. Ray Anthony Ayuyu Hocog, 34 , and Mary Pererira Rojas, 33 , were arrested late Wednesday afternoon on charges of child abuse and manslaughter. GPD Spokesperson Officer A.J. Balajadia says the couple are accused of neglecting the child who died last Saturday.  

Medics were called to the Mangilao couple's residence where the toddler was not breathing.  She died several hours later at the Naval Hospital.  

Officer Balajadia added that the toddler's six other siblings are in the care of relatives as directed by Child Protective Services. Both Hocog and Rojas were placed behind bars.
