WATERLOO TOWNSHIP, MI (AP) -

A 22-year-old woman has been arraigned after the body of her infant child was found buried in the backyard of a home where she once lived in Jackson County's Waterloo Township.

The Jackson Citizen Patriot reports that Brittni Hill's bond was set Friday at $500,000.

Hill is charged with concealing a death and removing a body without approval by a medical examiner.

The child's father, 24-year-old Timothy Young, also is charged. He is being held in Ohio where the couple was arrested.

Hill was returned Thursday to Michigan. An Aug. 11 preliminary examination has been set.

Authorities have said the infant may have been buried six to seven months ago. The child is believed to have been 6 months to a year old at the time of death.
