A west side couple pled guilty to starving their baby after doctors found the child malnourished and in need of emergency hospitalization.

Donnuel and Keeana Huddleston were arrested last August. Their baby was 11 months old at the time. 

According to court records the parents "minimize the seriousness of the child's medical condition," and "failed to provide her with adequate nutrition." Records also show the mom and dad did not get necessary follow-up medical care after the baby suffered a fractured skull during childbirth.

The baby and an older sibling are now in foster care. 

Sentencing for mom and dad is set for February 24, 2014.
