A woman accused in a deadly child abuse case is out of jail and KKTV has learned it's because she is pregnant.

Police say Sarah Finn and her husband Paul were the 2-year-old victim's foster parents.

Sarah, 23, was initially charged with child abuse resulting in serious bodily injury, and 36-year-old Paul was charged with withholding proper medical care.

On Aug. 21, the Pueblo Police Department says fire and rescue personnel were called to a home on the 300 block of E. Orman Ave., where a little girl was unconscious after falling down the stairs. Police say she was suffering from head trauma, had facial and eye injuries, and bruising on her body. She was airlifted to a hospital in Colorado Springs.

Chassie Pietrolungo, 2, later died at the hospital.

Police say they spoke to the Finns at the hospital, who said they were in the process of adopting the toddler through a foster program. During the course of an interview with the couple, police say their story changed several times.

The couple was arrested after a search warrant was executed in their home.

The investigation is still ongoing.
