Couple Charged After Baby's Body Found in Home's Crawl Space: Authorities have charged a Pennsylvania couple after finding the body of their 6-month-old baby in a crawl space of their residence. Officials in Berks County said a tip from a family member about the welfare of the baby led officers to an apartment in Spring Township late Monday night. They found baby photos and used diapers in a locked bathroom. In a crawl space, authorities said, the body of a baby believed to be Harper Trump was found in a trash bag in a large plastic container of cat litter. The baby's parents, 25-old Shaun Oxenreider and 27-year-old Samantha Trump are charged with concealing the death of a child, abuse of a corpse and conspiracy.

Austin Bombing Suspect Killed After Detonating Bomb: The suspect in a spate of bombing attacks that have killed two people and injured four others this month blew himself up with an explosive device as authorities closed in, the city police said early Wednesday. Authorities had zeroed in on the suspect in the last 24 to 36 hours and located him at a hotel on Interstate 35 in the Austin suburb of Round Rock, Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said at a news conference. They were waiting for ballistic vehicles to arrive when his vehicle began to drive away, Manley said. Authorities followed the vehicle, which stopped in a ditch on the side of the road, the police chief said. When members of the SWAT team approached, the suspect detonated an explosive device inside the vehicle, the police chief said. The blast knocked back one officer, while a second officer fired his weapon, Manley said. The suspect, who suffered significant injuries from the blast, was killed. Authorities identified him only as a 24-year-old white man. Authorities said it was too soon to say if the suspect had worked alone. They also said they don't know his motive.
