SINKING SPRING, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania couple is facing criminal charges after police found the body of an infant believed to be their 6-month-old daughter in a crawl space at their apartment.
Police went to their apartment complex in Springfield Township late Monday on a tip from a relative who had heard stories from the father about the couple’s child having died.
Authorities say the body was found in a trash bag in a plastic container filled with cat litter, in a crawl space under steps leading to the second floor.
Twenty-five-year-old Shaun Oxenreider and 27-year-old Samantha Trump are charged with concealing the death of a child, abuse of a corpse and conspiracy.
An autopsy is set for Thursday.
Oxenreider was held on $250,000 bond. His attorney says he wasn’t the primary caregiver.
Trump remains hospitalized after collapsing when police came to her door.
