PEARL, MS (AP) A Pearl couple has been indicted by a Rankin County grand jury for their alleged involvement in the July 2009 death of their 2 month old son.

Michael and Amanda Voyles will be arraigned December 10th on charges of capital murder and felonious child abuse.

District Attorney Michael Guest says they have not made a decision on whether to pursue the death penalty.

Elisha was removed from life support at University of Mississippi Medical Center on July 13, 2009, the day after he was brought to the hospital with his injuries.
