A Michigan father's jaw dropped in court this week as he was told he could spend the rest of his life behind bars for the starvation death of his 10-month-old daughter.

An autopsy found that Mary Anne Welch was severely neglected, and parents Seth Welch and Tatiana Fusari were both charged with murder and child abuse.

Investigators say that Welch and Fusari knew about their daughter's failing health but did not seek medical help due to their religious beliefs and their mistrust in doctors.

(AP) — The parents of a 10 - month - old girl who died of malnutrition and dehydration in western Michigan have been charged with felony murder and first-degree child abuse. Seth Welch and Tatiana Fusari, both 27, were charged Monday in the death of their daughter , Mary.

A CHRISTIAN couple looked shocked when they were charged for murder after allegedly starving their baby girl to death for religious reasons. If the pair are convicted of felony murder they could face life in prison without parole.

The couple was arrested on Friday, one day after Seth Welch woke up in their Solon Township home and found the baby unresponsive in her crib.

"Woke up to Mary dead in her bed this morning — this evening had our children removed and placed on 'no contact' because Tati and I are the worst parents ever," he posted on Facebook on Thursday.

Two other children were placed in the care of Seth Welch's parents.

Seth Welch often quoted scripture on his Facebook page.

"Every man accordingly who spares to speak a word of rebuke to his son, hates his son," he wrote two weeks ago. "Therefore teach your sons the word of the Lord, and punish them with stripes, and bring them into subjection from their youth by your word of religion."

Hand-painted signs at their home read "Repent. Believe. Obey," according to WOODTV.

Welch also quotes Donald Trump's book "The Art of the Deal" on Facebook, writing, “the final key to the way I promote is bravado. I play to people’s fantasies. People may not always think big themselves, but they can still get very excited by those who do. That’s why a little hyperbole never hurts. People want to believe that something is the biggest and the greatest and the most spectacular. I call it truthful hyperbole. It’s an innocent form of exaggeration — and a very effective form of promotion."

Welch and Fusari were arraigned together on Monday, but will be tried separately. Welch appeared shocked during the proceedings, while Fusari cried as the charges were read, according to video obtained by the Detroit Free Press.

Fusari asked if she could be released on bond so she could work at McDonald's, but the judge said no.

"The court wants to make sure, particularly life without parole, that we've covered every aspect of this to protect our community, to protect our society, first and foremost to protect any other children that would be in your care and your guidance," Judge Sara Smolenski said, according to the Free Press.

"We have as little interest in forcing our beliefs and symbols upon you as we do in having the beliefs of others forced upon us"The 8.5-foot-tall statue, which depicts the winged half-goat, half-man, with two children at its side, was briefly installed in front of the State Capitol building on Thursday as a symbol of free speech and plurality of beliefs, organizers told NPR. It was also meant to protest the explicitly Christian values promoted by a Ten Commandments monument on Capitol grounds, in keeping with the Satanic Temple’s belief that religious displays should not be placed on public property.
