BAKER CITY, Ore. (AP) - An autopsy determined that co-sleeping was a significant factor in the death of Baker County baby.

District Attorney Matt Shirtcliff tells the Baker City Herald (https://is.gd/6KXk13 ) that the 5-month-old boy was sleeping with his parents in their bed when he moved into a position that left him unable to breathe.

The boy, Morgan Lee Mawhinney, died Sunday at his home in Baker City. His body was sent to Portland the following day for the autopsy.

No charges have been filed. Shirtcliff says the death is still under review.
