A grand jury returned presentments against Anthony Dyllan Phillips and Jade Elizabeth Phillips for a total of four counts: first degree murder committed in the perpetration of aggravated child neglect, first degree murder committed in the perpetration of aggravated child abuse, aggravated child neglect, and aggravated child abuse.

GPD and TBI investigated the case.

On Monday afternoon, officials learned that Anthony and Jade Phillips were at a home in Westmoreland, Tennessee.

The two were taken into custody, but a court date has not yet been set, according to a release from District Attorney General Jimmy Dunn.

Gatlinburg Police said 2-year-old Kipp Phillips was found dead in a auto in front of a house in the 400 block of Laurel Avenue just before 2 p.m. on Friday, July 14.

In a press release, Gatlinburg Police Chief Randy Brackins said police went to the home after getting a call saying a 2-year-old child had been left in a auto overnight.

Gatlinburg Police Chief Randall Brackins said the parents were Gatlinburg residents who were renting the house.

Felony murder carries a life sentence with the possibility of parole.
