NAGA -- Authorities have filed an infanticide case against a couple who allegedly killed their own child in Brgy. Balaynan, Goa, Camarines Sur.
Jose and Jocelyn Delos Santos, who abandoned their house, are suspected of killing their newborn baby.
The infant's lifeless body was found in a cassava plantation near the family's house on March 6. It was in the early stage of decomposition.
Authorities have yet to determine the motive behind the crime.
The family's neighbors, however, believe that the couple have marital problems.
The suspects face imprisonment for 12 years if found guilty. -- Report from Rona Nuñez, ABS-CBN News Bicol
