Gregory Robey accused in starvation death of 3-month-old son Phillip Robey

Phillip Robey weighed 5 pounds at time of death

INDIANAPOLIS - The father of a malnourished infant who died in November is facing charges related to the baby's death.

Gregory Robey, the father of 3-month-old Phillip Robey, has been arrested on charges of murder and neglect of a dependent.

Phillip Robey's mother, Bambi Glazebrook, was charged with murder in the baby's death.

Phillip Robey was so malnourished at the time of his death that he weighed only 5 pounds, which is less than what he weighed at his birth in August.

The cause of death was ruled extreme failure to thrive or starvation, Marion County Deputy Prosecutor Denise Robinson told RTV6 in November.

According to the probable cause affidavit, Phillip Robey was kept in the drawer of an entertainment center.

Glazebrook told investigators Gregory Robey was at the home where Phillip Robey died until around 1 p.m. on the day of the baby's death, according to documents from the Department of Child Services.

The same documents said Gregory Robey told investigators the last time he was in the home was Nov. 7, the day before the baby's death.

Gregory Robey said that while he was at the home Nov. 7, he noticed that Phillip Robey seemed to have breathing problems while asleep in the drawer of the entertainment center.

Gregory Robey's arrest record includes as many as six arrests from 2003 to 2011. Most of the charges were dismissed, but he has a 2005 conviction for stalking and a 2007 conviction for resisting law enforcement.
