A mother and father from Oklahoma City pleaded guilty Wednesday to second-degree murder for starving their 3-month-old baby to death.

Alysha Anderson and Miguel Soto rushed their infant daughter to the hospital back in June. Doctors say she weighed only three pounds and was severely malnourished.

Court documents stated "the child looked like a frail skeleton with skin as there was no body fat. The skin on the legs and arm hung loose and baggy."

Both Anderson, 20, and Soto, 21, were charged with second degree murder. On Wednesday, they both entered guilty pleas. A judge sentenced them to 45 years in prison. They will have to serve 30 years behind bars, and will spend another 15 years on probation.

The child's 3-year-old brother and 22-month-old sister have been placed in protective custody. Court records show they were dirty and unkempt, and that the little girl had a bad diaper rash.
