(NBC News)  A Tulsa, Oklahoma toddler is in critical condition after allegedly being starved by her parents.

Mark Knapp and Elizabeth Pester were arrested Tuesday for child abuse or neglect. 

According to the arrest reports, the couple's nearly 3-year-old child was hospitalized for "severe failure to thrive." Born in December 2010, the toddler weighed 13 pounds as of Tuesday.

Police say the child was previously hospitalized in June 2012 for failure to thrive and the baby's weight at that time was also 13 pounds.
