SEMINOLE, Oklahoma -- A couple from Seminole is charged with child neglect in the death of their 3-month-old daughter.

According to court documents, 29-year-old Samuel Eugene Wheeler Jr. and 22-year-old Crystal Lynn Erb are both charged in their daughter's death. A report says in 2008, their premature daughter weighed less when she died than she did when she was born.

The report states officials also found unused milk vouchers inside the couple's home.

Erb is set to be tried late next month. A preliminary hearing for Wheeler is scheduled for early October.
