HONOLULU (AP) - A former Hawaii Marine and his girlfriend indicted in the death of their 14-month-old son are scheduled to appear in federal court.

David Lonergan and Tracy Mattos are to appear in U.S. District Court in Honolulu Monday for a hearing. They are charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of Zayden Lonergan.

The indictment alleges the couple didn't immediately get medical treatment for the child last year. The infant was rushed to a Hawaii base fire station and remained unconscious until he died in February as a toddler.
