WARRENSBURG, Mo. (AP) - The discovery of an infant’s body in a cave has led to arrests and charges against two residents of Warrensburg in west-central Missouri.

Police and the Johnson County prosecutor announced Friday night that 19-year-old Latasha Wilson is charged with abandoning a corpse, and 20-year-old Zakary Carter is charged with tampering with physical evidence.

Neither had a listed phone number. Missouri’s online court records were not updated Friday night to show whether they had lawyers.

Two University of Central Missouri biology students found the decomposing body Tuesday in a cave at Pertle Springs, a university-owned public recreation area in Warrensburg.

Authorities are awaiting autopsy results to determine if more charges will be filed. They would not comment further on the case, including a possible relationship between the suspects and the infant.
