Two parents have been arrested in connection to the murder of their newborn, but police still have not found the victim’s remains, according to reports.
This week, police in Fort Dodge, Iowa, announced they arrested Taylor Blaha and Brandon Thoma on first-degree murder charges in connection to the death of a newborn.
However, police released few details in the case.

TV station KCCI reported that prosecutors said the two pushed the baby in a bathtub, leading to the death.
The two parents made previous attempts to cause a miscarriage but were unsuccessful, according to the report. Blaha also asked Thomas for Methamphetamine to help ease childbirth pain.
Text messages show Thomas hit the body in the woods, but police have not been able to find the remains, according to KCCI. Authorities have searched for the baby’s remains since November.
