PORTLAND – A Portland couple was arrested early Friday morning in connection with the death of their newborn baby girl in April.

On April 12, police were called to the report of a baby not breathing in the 8000 block of North Newman Avenue.

When officers arrived, they found newborn Krystal Mangus dead in the apartment, according to Sgt. Pete Simpson of Portland police.

Sarah Mangus, 29, and Jamie Mangus, 34, were indicted earlier this month in connection with the baby’s death.

Homicide detectives later determined Krystal had been born in the apartment but hadn’t received medical attention, Simpson said.

On Friday, Sarah and Jamie Mangus were arrested on charges of murder by abuse and manslaughter.
