Chickasaw County, IA – Zachary Koehn and Cheyanne Harris are being charged with murder and child endangerment after 4-month-old Sterling Koehn was found dead in a swing in Alta Vista. Koehn’s trial date has been moved back, but now Harris’ attorney is requesting this as well.

Harris’ trial date was initially set for Jan. 31 in Chickasaw County District Court. Her lawyer has requested that her trial date get pushed back so they can have more time to prepare. A new trial date will be selected later this month at a hearing.

Sterling Koehn is believed to have been in the swing for over a week. Maggots were found on the baby’s body. The 4-month-old was found on Aug. 30.
