(CBS) — The community of Barrington is preparing to bury the seven-month-old girl who police say was starved to death by her parents in January.
WBBM’s Kimberly Easton reports Rest in His Arms, a non-profit, is arranging funeral services for Mya Edwards. Rosalyn Popham says they’ve been holding services for abandoned or killed babies since 2005.
“It’s amazing to see how many people have come together to be a part of this,” Popham said.
Mya died after police say her parents had taken her and her twin off formula. The two had been fed bottles filled with just water, cereal and baby food.
