Default Baby Found Dead In Swing Covered In Maggots
More details are coming out about the death of a baby found dead in Chickasaw County, Iowa.

Two Chickasaw County parents are accused of murdering their nearly four-month-old son in August, according to the Chickasaw County Sheriff's Office.
Investigators said the child was found unresponsive in an infant swing at about 1:00 p.m. on August 30 in the apartments on Hilltop Avenue in Alta Vista.

According to a criminal complaint, Sterling Koehn was found in a powered, infant swing with maggots on his clothing and skin. An autopsy determined that Sterling weighed under seven pounds and was only 14 inches long, well below the 5th percentile in both size and weight for his age.

On Tuesday, the sheriff's office said Zachary Paul Koehn and Cheyanne Renae Harris were arrested and taken to jail. Both are charged with murder and child endangerment causing death.

Investigators believe the parents' account of how the baby died was inconsistent to the findings of the autopsy.

Court records show Zachery Koehn told police Harris had checked on their child at 9:00 a.m. on August 30 and said he was fine. Zachary told dispatchers he checked on him again about two hours later, finding him dead.

Further study of the growth and development of the maggots found on his body, show he had not had his diaper changed, given a bath or been removed from the swing in over a week.
