Two parents were found guilty in the starvation death of their son Tuesday.

Amy Hockett was convicted of murder while Joseph Pierson was convicted of reckless homicide.

The Wayne County couple stood trial in the death of their 3-month-old son, Khaiden. He died from dehydration due to starvation in 2012.

Wayne County prosecutors said the boy weighed nine pounds at birth but was only six pounds when he died.

Sentencing for the pair has been set for March.
