(Scroll down for video) A mother and her fiance of Missouri, were arrested over the death her daughter.

Police were called to the 3800 block of Dorchester Court in House Springs, for a report of a child having a seizure.

However, police quickly realized that the child had bruises all over her body, and they turned the investigation into a child abuse case.

Meanwhile, 2-year-old Adelaide “Addie” Mae Chaney was rushed to a hospital, where surgeons removed part of her skull to ease the swelling on her brain. Sadly, Addie succumbed to her injuries.

According to the Addie’s Memorial Fund GoFundMe campaign, her pressure went to over 90 while a child’s pressure should be 10 or less.

Now, her mother, 19-year-old Cheyenne Cook, and her fiance, Richard Gamache Jr., 24, were arrested over her death.

Police said that Gamache admitted to doing some WWE moves on the girl, including body slamming her to the ground.

Gamache was caring for the child at the time, while Cook was at work. Detectives said that they found text messages between the couple, proving that the girl had been abused over a period of time.

Cook never seeked medical attention for her daughter. Instead, she allowed Gamache to continue the abuse, and they discussed over text messages ways to cover up the injuries that Addie suffered.

Gamache was charged with abuse or neglect of a child and was given a $500,000 cash-only bond. Cook was charged with endangering the welfare of a child. She has a $2,500 cash-only bond.
