      Baby found in Toledo freezer was strangled, submerged in water

      Kenisha Pruitt

      New details about the baby found in an East Toledo freezer in April.

      The Lucas County Coroner Tuesday ruled the newborn's death is a homicide.

      The coroner says the baby boy was strangled and then submerged in water before it died.

      The final ruling also shows that 20-year-old Kenisha Pruitt and 18-year-old Antonio Cervantes were the baby's parents.

      Pruitt is charged with aggravated murder, abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence. Her Trial begins in august and she's locked up in the Lucas County Jail on a nearly $2 million bond.

      Cervantes has been charged in Toledo court with murder but not indicted by a Lucas County grand jury.
