Spain: US couple in court over finding of son's body at home

An American couple have been brought to court to answers questions about the finding of the badly decomposed body of their 7-year-old son at the family's rented apartment in the northeastern Spanish city of Girona.

The couple, whose names have not been released by authorities, were taken to the court around 8 a.m. (0700 GMT) Friday but it was not certain at what time they would appear before the judge.

Police on Tuesday arrested the two — a 39-year-old man and a 38-year-old woman — on suspicion of reckless homicide after officers found the child's body on a bed under several blankets.

Results of an autopsy held Thursday have not been officially released.
