An Iowa couple has been charged with murder after the decaying body of their 4-month-old infant was found in a baby swing inside their home, according to WHO.

Cheyanne Harris, 20, and Zachary Koehn, 28, called an ambulance to their Alta Vista apartment on Aug. 30 to report that their infant son, Sterling Koehn, had died “just a few hours” after Harris had fed the child.

First responders found the baby in a powered swing seat in a bedroom separate from where the couple and their other child slept, WHO reported.

According to a criminal complaint, maggots were found on the child’s skin and in his diaper. A forensic entomologist found that the child “had not had a diaper change, bath, or been removed from the seat in over a week.”
