Bryan Austin Seidle, 22, and Rebekah Brianna Thomas, 19, both of Florence, were arrested Wednesday and charged with Unlawful Conduct Toward a Child after investigators say their 6-week-old baby had to be hospitalized.
According to Florence County Sheriff's Office investigators, around May 1, 2014, the couple's 6-week-old baby was brought to a hospital emergency department with seizures.
The baby was tested, and investigators say the baby suffered non-accidental subarachnoid hemorrhages to the brain consistent with trauma.
The child was placed on a ventilator, but has since improved and has been released from the hospital.
Seidle and Thomas are scheduled for a bond hearing Wednesday afternoon.
