MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Neglect charges have been filed against a Milwaukee couple after their five-month-old son died last week.

The child was co-sleeping with his twin sister.

Investigators say, when they went to the home of Brenda McGee and Joseph Walker, they found a loaded gun in the sofa cushions, filthy living conditions and rotten food in the refrigerator.

Seven other children were removed from the home for their safety. The same family lost another baby due to co-sleeping 6 years ago.
