Kenya Stallworth, 39, was indicted April 13 on charges of felonious assault, murder, gross abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence after her son Dominic Allen’s decomposing body was found hidden in his bedroom under a pile of clothing in early December, court documents state, according to The Cincinnati Enquirer.  

Stallworth’s husband, Robert Robb, 35, is currently charged with gross abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence.

The victim was originally reported as missing and authorities believe the teenager may have been killed sometime between Sept. 26 and Oct. 16, the indictment notes.

Marcus Allen told WXIX-TV that he began searching for his son and putting up missing person posters and finally confronted Stallworth at the home where she had lived with their child.

“I asked her, ‘Where is my son?’” Marcus recalled. “She got upset because I am there asking about my child. I knew instantly something wasn’t right then.”

Marcus found out about his boy’s death months later.

“The first thing that came to my mind was, ‘What was going through your head when you all did whatever you all did? What happened for all of this to take place like this to the point where you all not only hide him under a pile of dirty clothes, you all sealed him in his bedroom?’” he said. “My emotions were running so high that day, all I saw was red.”

Both Stallworth and Robb are currently being held on $100,000 bonds at the Hamilton County Justice Center.
