LEBANON, Ore. -- Two people were arrested in Lebanon after police responded to their home for a report of a dead child.

Lebanon Police responded to the home Saturday, March 28, at 860 Park Street. Detectives discovered that the infant's death was the result of malnutrition and lack of care while in custody of the parents.

The girl was one-and-a-half months old.

Shantell Swiercz and Kristian Lee, the infant's parents, were taken into custody. Both are charged with first-degree manslaughter. 

Swiercz has had multiple prior contacts with the Lebanon Police Department, none of which resulted in criminal charges. Lee has had several arrests for theft, criminal mischief and criminal trespass. 

The investigation is still ongoing.

If you have any information, contact Lebanon Police Detective Chris Miner at 541-258-4314.
