CRESTVIEW, Fla. (AP) -- A Panhandle soldier and his fiancée face charges of child abuse and neglect in the death of the man's 2-year-old son.

The Northwest Florida Daily News reported that 27-year-old Army Sgt. Grant Sherwin and his fiancée, 26-year-old Nichole Marie Allen, were arrested late Thursday after Sherwin's son was found dead by emergency responders.

The boy's twin sister was taken into protective custody.

According to investigators, emergency crews went to the home Wednesday evening after the couple called 911. Emergency workers told police that they found 2-year-old Logan malnourished and with numerous bruises on his body.

Jail records show that both Sherwin and Allen remained in custody on Friday. Neither had an attorney listed.

Sherwin is a supply sergeant with the Army 7th Special Forces Group.
