(Reuters) - A New York state man and woman alleged to have produced pornography using a 16-month-old baby were ordered held without bail on Saturday, authorities said.

The suspects - Jason Kopp, 40, of Liverpool, and Emily Oberst, 23, of Syracuse - were arrested by FBI agents on Friday, the U.S. Attorney's Office for New York's Northern District said in a statement.

They were charged with making and distributing child pornography involving the infant, it said. U.S. Magistrate Judge Andrew Baxter ordered them held without bail.
