APPLE VALLEY, Calif. - An Apple Valley father and his girlfriend on Wednesday were charged in connection with the death of the man's 4-year-old daughter, according to the San Bernardino County District Attorney's Office.
Officials said 24-year-old Isiah Rumph and 22-year-old Charity Staffieri are charged with murder, assault on a child causing death, and torture.
The pair was arrested on Oct. 25 on suspicion of assault causing death. The arrest came after Rumph's daughter, Jazmine, died at a local hospital following a 911 call that the girl was unresponsive. They were booked at the Central Detention Center and were then transferred to the West Valley Detention Center.
"Jazmine was such an amazing young lady. She was so full of life , and could easily brighten up the room she walked in. We’re all shattered at this tragedy," Jazmine's mother wrote on her GoFundMe page.
Bail for both suspects has been set at $2 million. The next court hearing is scheduled for Nov. 4.
