ALTA VISTA, Iowa (AP) — Authorities have charged an Iowa couple with murder in the death of their 4-month-old son, whose maggot-infested body was found in a baby swing in the family’s home.

Twenty-year-old Cheyanne Harris and 28-year-old Zachary Koehn (kayn) were arrested Wednesday on charges of child endangerment and first-degree murder in the death of their son, Sterling Koehn. Court records don’t list attorneys for either of them. Their preliminary hearing is scheduled for Nov. 2.

Authorities say in court records that deputies and medics called to the couple’s Alta Vista apartment on Aug. 30 found Sterling dead in the swing. A medical examiner found maggots in his clothing and skin that indicated he hadn’t had a diaper change, bath or been removed from the seat in over a week.

I wonder why his mug wasn't also at the link.

Their son, Sterling Daniel Koehn, was found dead Aug. 30 after Koehn called 911 requesting an ambulance to the couple's Alta Vista apartment, court records show.

When Chickasaw County sheriff's deputies and medics arrived, they found the deceased boy sitting in a powered swing in a bedroom separate from where Koehn, Harris and their older child slept, according to criminal complaints filed in court against the couple.

An autopsy of the baby's body revealed "maggots in various stages of development in his clothing and on his skin," court records show.

A forensic entomologist studied the maggots to determine that Sterling had not been removed from the baby swing for more than a week, and he had not had a diaper change or bath in that time, court records show.

The State Medical Examiner ruled the death a homicide, and the cause of death was failure to provide critical care.

"The facts of this case go far beyond neglect and show circumstances manifesting an extreme indifference to human life," Chickasaw County Sheriff's Deputy Reed Palo wrote in the criminal complaints.

When deputies first arrived to the couple's apartment, Koehn reportedly told them that his girlfriend, Harris, had fed Sterling that morning "and he was fine." Koehn said Harris checked on the baby a couple of hours later, and he had died, according to the complaints.

This story was not consistent with autopsy findings and other investigation, court records show.

Why did this bitch even go through nine months of pregnancy? I don't even want to know what this poor baby went through. These two should be thrown in a cell and left to rot like they did to this poor baby.

I wonder how long the poor little guy had been dead. How could you live with your baby just hanging there like that?

@Satanica said what I was thinking, they stuck him in the swing in a room all by himself and left him, to cry or not, as long they didn't have to bother with him.

The last line has got to be the understatement of the year! No shi* that the story was "not consistent with autopsy findings"!!!
Very very sad and heart wrenching.

RIP Sterling Koen!
:(

I have a 9mo nephew named Sterling, it was his grandpa's middle name, he died 6 months before Sterling was born.

It just makes me think about one Sterling, loved and adored by his entire family and the other Sterling neglected to death by his POS "parents". It's just not fair, sometimes.

He only weighed 7 lbs which is average at birth so chances are he was neglected from birth and was left for days on end at a time with nothing to eat/drink or interaction until his little body finally gave up.
We need a crying reaction for things like this :(

What?????!!!!! This is so terrible and heartwrenching that my brain can not understand what I just read. My head actually hurts from trying so hard to repair itself from the image it tried to create of this poor child. How could anyone sit back and let their own flesh and blood literally rot to death. Fuck! Now I need to face time each of my grandbabies post haste just to see beauty and innocence. Logging off!

For me the pivotal case was Benjamin Sargent, I will never forget him, and this conjours up the same kind of vivid picture of absolute depraved indifference to human life. A little defenseless baby, just left there, forgotten and ignored and unwanted. I hate these so-called people so much.

They need to be skinned alive and rolled in salt.
Seriously

That pic here in DD where the gangs put like a hundred knives in that one guy
That's what they should get
Plus a bullet.
This is so outrageous...

There was 2 other children in that house that had to watch their baby brother rot away while crawling with maggots, were they taken care of????? Tired of seeing all these junkies and POS people that can't be bothered to take care of their kids instead of putting them up for adoption. Fuck skinning and salting these "parents", put them in a diaper filled with maggot on them, stick'em in a swing, let people keep walking by and not do a damn thing to help til they die. I don't know worse the microwaved baby, anally raped babies, the oven baked babies, rat bitten baby, or this. Wish it was none of the above. How do you go a week without holding your baby or kissing their little feet and see them laugh?

The older kid/s might have been able to get their own food, popcorn, potato chips, dog food. As long as these shit heads were not bothered, they didn't care what they were doing.

I honestly don't understand how someone can do this, my 7 lb daughter is thin and long at 2 months old and I am constantly offering her a bottle trying to get her to gain more... And she's at least 12 lb.
First time posting, long time lurker. I hope I did this right lol

By the look on her face, she's not going to care that this happened. Sadly, she'll probably be happy to be where she is now...no kids...no responsibilities. I hope Butch is waiting for her with a broom handle.
