(Scroll down for video) The parents of a 9-week-old baby were arrested on a charge of murder after allegedly killing their son and allowing the body to decompose in his crib, police in Florida said.

North Port police said that they have arrested 36-year-old Joseph Walsh and 32-year-old Kristen Bury, after being accused of killing 9-week-old Chance.

Both were charged with one count of murder and one count of child neglect. They were booked into jail, and were denied bail.

According to the police investigation, Walsh beat Chance until he died. After killing Chance, he was placed in his crib, where he was left to decompose.

When Bury complained about the smell, Walsh wrapped Chance in numerous trash bags and put the decomposing remains in a closet.

Eight days later, the two dug a shallow grave and buried their son. Bury revealed the burial site to investigators during questioning.
