Three family members have been arrested on murder charges after the remains of an infant were found in a Lincoln County home in early 2022.
After further investigation, LCSD said that three people were indicted on May 16.
Kelsie Higby, the infant’s mother; Aimee Higby, the maternal grandmother of the infant; and Christopher Chapman, the brother-in-law of the grandmother, were all charged and indicted.
Authorities said they are all facing first-degree murder, aggravated child abuse, tampering with evidence, abuse of a corpse, simple possession/ casual exchange of fentanyl, simple possession/ casual exchange of meth, and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia charges.
All three suspects are being held under a $5 million dollar bond each.
