ST. LOUIS (AP) – St. Louis police and U.S. marshals have found and taken into custody two people wanted on child abuse and other charges after authorities in Oklahoma last month found one of their children dead and three others in critical condition.
Police said on Twitter Friday that 27-year-old Hakim Mustafa Moore and 29-year-old Robin Alexander were located and that a 3-month-old child was located unharmed.
The couple’s last known address was in Altus, Oklahoma, about 640 miles (1,030 kilometers) from St. Louis. Police in Altus received a tip that Alexander and Moore had fled to St. Louis to avoid capture after an arrest warrant was issued on June 10th.
At the time, police said that the couple had a fifth child who was born in a hotel room and had not been located.
