JEFFERSON CITY – A man and woman face charges after their arrest Thursday, which comes after the death of a two-month-old child in late September.
Jason Williams, 29, and Kayla Brewer, 19, are charged with endangering the welfare of a child, receiving stolen property and delivery of a controlled substance.
The investigation started on September 30 after the couple’s child died. The cause of death has not been released. While investigating, deputies found a stolen gun, marijuana and more than $30,000.
The Cole County Sheriff’s Department said other state and federal agencies assisted in the investigation. More charges are expected in the case.
