    SINKING SPRING, Pa. (AP) - The parents of a 6-month-old girl found dead in a storage container in a crawl space in their Pennsylvania home are facing criminal homicide charges.

    Twenty-five-year-old Shaun Oxenreider and 27-year-old Samantha Trump were charged in Berks County with concealing the death of a child, abuse of a corpse and conspiracy.

    Authorities say Harper Trump's body was found March 20 in a trash bag in a plastic container filled with cat litter at the Springfield Township complex. An autopsy concluded Harper died around Jan. 1 from blunt-force head trauma and had rib fractures.

    The defendants remain in prison in lieu of $250,000 bail each. Messages left with their legal representatives after business hours Wednesday haven't been returned. Oxenreider's attorney earlier said his client wasn't the primary caregiver.
