Lakesha Baker, 22 and Michael Scott, 21, who lives with Baker, were each charged with first degree murder, though authorities have not yet found the child's body, said Sally Daly, a spokeswoman for the Cook County State's Attorney.

Both are in custody and will appear in Bond Court at 26th and California Saturday morning.

When Baker first reported her son missing she told police that three Hispanic males battered her and sped off in a car. Within hours, Maywood police determined Baker's story was not true.

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
