COBB COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

Two Georgia Division of Family and Children Services employees have been fired following the death investigations of two children.

The first case involved 12-year-old Eric Forbes in Paulding County.

Authorities say his father, Shayaa Forbes, called police to report that he drowned. Read more on this story.

But responding officers said Eric's body had severe signs of child abuse and charged his father with murder.

The second case centers on Markea Berry who police say was starved to death last year in her Mableton home by her mother, Ebony Berry. Read more.

The Division of Family and Children Services would only confirm to CBS Atlanta News that a supervisor and a social service administrator were let go Tuesday.

Authorities have not said exactly what lead to their termination.
