BROWARD COUNTY, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2023 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Two north Broward County residents are in the Broward County Jail mid-day Tuesday, now charged with killing their one year old child.

According to detectives, at approximately 3:03 p.m. on Sept. 24, 2022, BSO Deerfield Beach District deputies responded to 218 S.W. Third St. reference a medical emergency. Upon arrival, they discovered a child in medical distress. Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue transported the child to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced deceased. 

A lengthy investigation by BSO Homicide and Crime Scene unit investigators revealed that the child’s parents, Shaneka Dean and Wendy Previl, failed to provide the care, supervision and services necessary for 1-year-old Zaire Cenatus. As a result of this culpable negligence, the child died from a lethal intoxication of drugs, including fentanyl. Dean and Previl were also charged with possession of fentanyl. BSO arrested Dean and Previl on Monday, Jan. 9.
