LONDON, Ont. -- A couple charged in the death of a Strathroy, Ont., toddler were married only 10 days ago.

Amanda Dumont, 28, and Scott Bakker, 24, are charged with criminal negligence causing death and failing to provide the necessaries of life in the death of Ryker Daponte-Michaud.

The 20-month-old died May 21 in a home on Penny Lane, a quiet residential street north of downtown, police said.

Dumont and Bakker were arrested Friday and are scheduled to appear Monday in a London court for a bail hearing.

On Dumont's Facebook page it says she's married to Bakker. Their Facebook timelines indicate they were married May 16.

An obituary listing for Ryker Daponte-Michaud states he was the only son of Amanda Dumont-DaPonte and Jean-Francois Michaud. A funeral mass is scheduled for Wednesday in Watford, Ont.

The obituary says Ryker passed away unexpectedly at his residence. He is survived by three sisters.

Strathroy-Caradoc police and the Ontario Provincial Police said they're continuing their investigation.
