Prosecutors in Douglas County, Oregon, have accused a couple of allowing their infant son to starve to death as they produced breast-feeding porn, the Associated Press reported.

Amanda Marie Hancock, 21, and Stephen Michael Williams, 26, were arrested Tuesday after a medical examiner determined their baby died of starvation, the Douglas County Sheriff's Office said.

Deputies were first called to the couple's home in the small town of Glendale on Jan. 22, when their 7-week-old son Data was found unresponsive.

The infant was declared dead at the scene.

According to court records, prosecutors said the couple failed to provide adequate food or medical care to the infant, the AP reported. The parents said they fed the baby several times a day, but did not take him to a doctor following his birth, even when he began to lose weight.

The couple also told investigators they made online pornography, in which people paid to watch Hancock lactating, the AP reported.
