Parents arrested for 'long-term starvation' of 2-year-old child in Davenport, Judd says

DAVENPORT, Fla. - Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said a nearly 3-year-old child looked more like a 3-month-old after being starved to death by her parents.The child's parents, 37-year-old Regis Johnson and 35-year-old Arhonda Tillman, have been arrested and charged with neglect.
