Police: Del. couple murdered infant, buried body on property

 

MAGNOLIA, Del. – A Delaware couple is facing charges after police say they killed their baby and then buried the body in their yard.

Police say 22-year-old Angel Toran and her fiance,24-year-old Ny’Jier Murphy are now facing charges of murder by abuse or neglect.

Back on October 10th, police say the Division of Family Services got a tip that an infant possibly died at the home and that death was never reported. So police responded, and eventually started an investigation.

They say Angel gave birth to a baby at the home in April of 2021 and never reported the birth. Police say the baby died five months later, and again, the couple never reported the death, but instead buried the baby’s body on the property.

After exhuming the body, we’re told the medical examiner determined the baby died of malnourishment.

While the couple now faces charges, we’re told the investigation is ongoing.
