Parents of malnourished teen charged with murder

ADEL — The adoptive parents of a 16-year-old Iowa girl who weighed only 56 pounds when she died have been charged with first-degree murder.

Court records show a Dallas County judge on Tuesday approved the prosecution’s request to bring more charges against Misty and Marc Ray.

They’re the adoptive parents of 16-year-old Sabrina Ray, who was found dead May 12 inside the family’s home in Perry, 35 miles northwest of Des Moines.
