Baby Found In Ohio Freezer, 2 Charged With Murder

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio couple accused of putting a newborn in a freezer have been charged with murder.

Authorities on Tuesday upgraded the charges against the pair, who have been in jail for about a week on child-endangering charges.

Kenisha Pruitt and Antonio Cervantes, of Toledo, both appeared in court Tuesday. A judge set bond at $1 million for each. Both have asked for court-appointed attorneys.

A landlord found the baby boy's body while cleaning out one of his rental properties. A coroner last week ruled that the infant was born alive and had lived no more than two days.

The autopsy didn't reveal the cause of death or the infant's identity.

    Anyone that could even think of doing something like this should be sentenced to death. I agree, this country needs less lawyers and quick trials.

    Sounds like a case that will probably end up the parents going to am insane assylum instead of prison. More tax dollars going to waste on human scum. We need less lawyers quick trials and immediate death for people like this.

        Oh, yes. They're obviously guilty. No need for due process.
