Muncie - A father and stepmother are behind bars after police say extreme abuse led to the death of five-year-old Lauren Michele McConniel.

Investigators say she suffered extreme abuse at the hands of her father and stepmother, Ryan and Brittany McConniel. Court documents also show her sibling told investigators their parents disciplined the girl by hitting the bottom of her feet with a stick, made her do jumping jacks and push-ups and hold heavy cans or books with her arms outstretched.

The child died in March at Riley Hospital.

Muncie Police arrested the father and stepmother for neglect of a dependent resulting in death. The McConniels are at the Delaware County Jail. While the family is split on exactly what happened to the girl, when they do go to court, they will have some family support.
