(MUNCIE) - An eastern Indiana coroner is awaiting test results to determine exactly what killed a 5-year-old Haitian girl six weeks ago in Muncie.

Delaware County authorities have said Marie Pierre was repeatedly beaten and at times attacked with tools at the Muncie home before she died June 22.

But Coroner Scott Hahn told The Star Press he won't know the exact cause until tests are completed.

According to a probable cause affidavit, the girl was found to have "multiple untreated injuries," including cuts and lacerations in multiple stages of healing.

Marcus Tabb, 53, and his wife, Charlene Tabb, 30, have pleaded not guilty to a charge of neglect of a dependent.

Marcus Tabb was being held Saturday on $300,000 bond while Charlene Tabb was being held on $500,000 bond.
