ROSEBURG, Ore. — An Oregon couple involved in online pornography has been arrested on charges of murder by abuse after an autopsy determined their 7-week-old baby boy died of starvation.
Douglas County sheriff’s deputies said Wednesday that 26-year-old Stephen Michael Williams Jr. and 21-year-old Amanda Marie Hancock were arrested Tuesday at their home in Glendale. They were to be arraigned Wednesday.
A probable-cause affidavit filed by deputies says the parents told investigators they did pornography, which involved the mother self-lactating while others paid to watch online. The two also said they fed the baby milk but never took him to a doctor, despite signs he was losing weight.
