GRAND RIVER, Iowa (AP) - A child who was found unresponsive earlier this week has now died, and the infant’s parents are both facing charges.

Decatur County Attorney Lisa Jeanes says 3-month-old Sebastian Guill died Thursday at a Des Moines hospital. Autopsy results are pending.

Authorities say they received a report around noon Monday about an infant who was having trouble breathing. When emergency crews arrived at the Grand River home they found Guill unresponsive.

The child’s father, 25-year-old Joshua Guill, was initially charged with child endangerment causing bodily injury, but since the infant’s death he now faces charges of first-degree murder and child endangerment causing death.

The child’s mother, 20-year-old Jasmin Kifer, is charged with child endangerment causing serious injury.

Court records don’t list the name of an attorney for Guill or Kifer.
