SINKING SPRING, Pa. (CBS/AP) — Authorities in Berks County say a couple has been charged after a 6-month-old baby was found in a trash bag in a large plastic container of cat litter at their residence.

Spring Township police said a tip from a family member about the welfare of the baby led officers to an apartment late Monday night.
