Police say miscarried fetus found in Las Vegas woman's freezer; marijuana, gun in bassinet

Police questioning a couple about a shooting in their Las Vegas neighborhood say they found the remains of a miscarried fetus in a jar in the freezer, and a stolen gun and about a half-pound of marijuana hidden by a child's bassinet.

It wasn't clear Friday if Carlena Walker and Preston Caudle would face criminal charges stemming from the remains of what Walker told police was her 8-week miscarriage last October.

A child of unknown age also was in the home, and Walker was arrested on a child abuse charge because the firearm and drugs were in the bassinet.

Police identified Caudle as a convicted felon from Arizona and arrested him on drug, weapon and child abuse charges. He and Walker were jailed. It wasn't immediately clear if they had attorneys.

The county coroner is trying to determine the gestational age of the fetus, and a cause of death.
