HARRISBURG -- A horrific story involving a Schuylkill County native ended Monday with two parents pleading guilty to the murder of their 9-year-old son.

Jarrod and Kimberly Tutko pleaded guilty in Harrisburg Monday morning to all charges against them including third degree murder.

Investigators in Dauphin County say the couple's mentally disabled son died of neglect last August and Jarrod Tutko, originally from Shenandoah, concealed the death of his son for several days.

When his body was finally discovered, the boy weighed less than 17 pounds.
