A 6 year old boy was found buried underneath the floorboard of an Arkansas home last week and the boys mother and a man have now been charged with his death.
Around 10:45 p.m. Friday night Lee County Sheriff’s were called to a home in Moro for an unclear reason.
They then notified Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division, who also came out to the home.
While at the home authorities discovered a 6 year old boy deceased under the floorboard. They also located a 6 year old girl who looked like she had burn marks on her scalp.
The state medical examiners are working to determine the young boys actual cause of death.
Authorities arrested the boys mother, 28 year old Ashley Roland, and 33 year old Nathan Bridges. They were both charged with capital murder, abuse of a corpse, tampering with physical evidence and endangering the welfare of a minor.
The 6 year old girl was removed from the home and taken to an area hospital where she was being treated for minor injuries.
