Police say a baby sitter for a one-year-old boy found dead in a Cincinnati apartment has been arrested on charges of abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence.
Sgt. Gary Conner says Cincinnati police arrested 26-year-old Marquita Burch of Covington, Ky., on Saturday after she reported toddler William Cunningham missing Friday in Covington and then recanted her story. The child's body was found in a closet of the Cincinnati apartment. Police don't know how he died.
Burch is in jail in Cincinnati. Jail records list no attorney for her.
Police say Burch had been babysitting the toddler at an apartment complex in the northern Kentucky city.
Covington police received a call Friday that the child had wandered away from a playground and searched the area for five hours.
