COMANCHE COUNTY, OK (RNN Texoma) - The Comanche County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a three-year-old girl’s death.

First responders performed CPR, but Stradley says the girl later died after being taken to a hospital.

Deputies are now looking into what happened and they've taken the girl's mother and father into custody for criminal child neglect that resulted in death.
