Police say the couple lives in a shed behind a residence on the 300 block of South Zunis Avenue. Living conditions were described as "deplorable" with "trash, chemicals and filth" next to be baby's crib.

"The shed was also uninsulated which left the baby very little protection from the elements," the arrest report states.
