Parents Accused In 5-Month-Old's Death

Police have arrested the parents of a 5-month-old baby who died. Both are charged with child abuse resulting in death.

Nicholas Manuel Lucero, 21, and Elizabeth Elishah Lopez, 20, were arrested Thursday.

Colorado Springs police say the couple put the infant in the back of a closet under a shelf to sleep. They also say the couple propped pillows around the baby to muffle the infant's crying.

KKTV is asking police how the baby died.

Lucero and Lopez are being held in the El Paso County Jail on $50,000 bond.
