The parents of a 4-month-old Iowa boy who was found dead in a motorized swing in late August in a state of decomposition have been charged with murder, PEOPLE confirms.

Cheyanne Harris, 21, and Zachary Koehn, 28, were taken into custody on Wednesday.

Both are charged with child endangerment and first-degree murder in the death of their son, Sterling Koehn, according to a criminal complaint obtained by PEOPLE.

Neither has entered a plea to the charges, and efforts to reach their attorneys for comment were unsuccessful Thursday. They are being held without bail.

Both are due back in court on Nov. 2.

Court records allege police and medical personnel were summoned to the couple’s apartment in Alta Vista on August 30. Koehn had called 911 that day, requesting an ambulance for his unresponsive son.
