The couple confessed to their failure to report the passing of the child to any law enforcement authority.
State prosecutors have charged the father, Roland Grabowski, with abandoning or endangering a child, corpse abuse, and messing with psychical evidence for his involvement in the couple’s horrific actions related to the dead baby found in the tar bucket.
He is being held in the Collin County Detention Facility, and his bond stands at $925,000.
The mother, Donna Grabowski, was charged with the same crimes, but she also received an additional charge of messing with physical evidence, the New York Post reports.
Donna also received a higher bond than her husband. It stands at $1,075,000.
Authorities said there are more charges to be expected against the parents.
