They were both charged with murder. According to the police investigation, the mother of two children gave birth at home with the help of a friend.

The baby was born alive, but the two killed the child.

Investigators learned that the mother wanted to get rid of her baby because she was not ready to raise a third child. The suspects however, claimed that the baby died during the birth.

They claimed that the baby died while they were trying to pull the child out with a cloth. Since the child was dead, they decided to flush the body down the toilet.
