Two Iowa parents are behind bars after their four-month old baby was found dead in their Alta Vista home. 

Cheyanne Harris and Zachary Koehn have both been charged with first-degree murder in connection to the case. The Chickasaw County Sheriff says the baby boy was found dead in his swing in August. 

Court documents show the baby weighed less than seven pounds at the time of his death. The child hadn't been removed from the swing or had his diaper changed in more than a week.
