A young couple were arrested and held on $1million bond after their landlord found a newborn baby in a garbage bag in the freezer after they moved out.
20 year old Kenisha Pruitt, seen below, and her boyfriend 18 year old Antonio Cervantes, of Toledo, Ohio, were charged with child endangerment after the landlord found the frozen solid body of the child.
Court documents allege Cervantes, seen below, and Pruitt caused serious harm to a newborn infant and more charges could be added pending an autopsy.
The coroner said they have to wait for the baby to thaw out before they can perform any tests on it, including the identity of the child.
The documents say they had lived there since November and were moving out. Court records also say family members believed Pruitt was pregnant in November but no birth was reported.
They have a 14-month-old daughter who is currently staying with family members while her parents remain in jail.
Sgt Joe Heffernan of the Toledo Police Department told WTOL 11: ‘If the child was stillborn, was it alive, all those things – manner of death – all of those things are going to play into what kind of additional charges we may file.’ He added that he does not know the age or gender of the infant, and is not commenting on the relationship of the suspects to the child.
