MOUNT HOLLY, N.J. - A couple has been charged with beating their infant son to death, then burning his corpse in their fireplace, officials said Friday.
Kevin Abrahams, 25, and Jessica Morgan, 20, were arrested Sunday in Kissimmee, Fla., Burlington County prosecutors said.
Investigators believe the couple killed Sage Tyler Morgan-Abrahams in Burlington City sometime between March 31 and April 28, when he was seven to eight months old. He was born Aug. 17, 2001.
No one noticed the boy was missing until June 15, when Morgan's mother called police to say she had not seen her grandson since Easter.
Around that time, the couple was thrown out of a friend's home where they had been staying about 10 miles northeast of Philadelphia, prosecutor Robert Bernardi said.
A week later, police said they found an infant's charred remains in a trash bag in the closet of the room where the couple had been living. A burned can of baby formula was found with the remains, and police say snaps resembling those from a baby's outfit were found in the fireplace.
Morgan and Abrahams were charged with drug possession by Florida authorities. They were being held without bail and couldn't be reached for comment Friday. It wasn't immediately clear if they had attorneys.
Bernardi is seeking to return them to New Jersey, where they have been charged with murder.

These people are sick, sick, sick bastards...who deserve nothing less than to be burnt themselves. That being said, rotting in prison and getting the shit kicked out of them by the other inmates...who're probably only in for assault [on adults] and robbery...instead of baby killing. Rapists, pedophiles and baby killers get beat down real good in prison.

They're not sick; they don't have a disease. The word you're looking for is EVIL (not channeling Kaientai here). Not only should people like this die, they should be castrated/sterilized the moment they show any such tendencies. I've met maybe one former drug addict who became a decent parent.
