SALINA, Kan. - A Salina couple will have public defenders as they face charges of first-degree murder in the death of their infant son.
The Salina Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1bzpmHh) 27-year-old Nicholas Corbin and 20-year-old Desirah Overturf made their first court appearances Tuesday by video from the Saline County Jail.
Police were called to their home the night of Dec. 26 and found Jordan Jeremiah Corbin dead. The baby was two months and 27 days old.
Nicholas Corbin initially told District Judge Patrick Thompson on Tuesday that he was considering pleading guilty. The judge urged him instead to at least talk with a public defender.
Prosecutors also asked the judge to appoint a lawyer for Overturf.
Investigators have not revealed how the baby died. Bond for both defendants is set at $1 million.
