LAYTON, Utah (AP) - The body of a boy who matches the description of a missing 4-year-old child has been found in a Utah canyon and his mother and stepfather are in custody, police said Tuesday.

Layton police said Ethan Stacy's stepfather, Nathan Sloop, 31, will be charged with aggravated homicide. His mother, Stephanie Sloop, 27, will be charged with felony child abuse. Both will face obstruction of justice and desecration of corpse charges.

The search for Ethan started Tuesday after police said the boy's mother had reported him missing, saying she has last seen him in bed at their Layton apartment Monday night. Officials said she told them that the boy had wandered away five of the last 10 nights.

Step father. Boyfriends and step fathers (and sometimes girlfriends and step mothers) are a child’s worst nightmear.

I agree. There are too many stories like that.

IF the mother and stepfather did this to this little boy, his biological father should be allowed to torture them and then throw them down a canyon. No bullcrap trials.

I read that part, too, and my heart just broke for the father.

There are mothers, and then there are breeders. This b*tch is a breeder. She doesn't have the RIGHT to be called a "mother."

Mothers will kill to protect their children; breeders have no problem killing their children.

Mothers commit more abuse and nelect than dads.

For all the bad rap dads get, they’re the safest person for a child to be with.

There is no punishment available to the state of Utah that will satisfy in this case.Death by lethal injection,hanging,firing squad,all fall short of what’s needed here.

It’s ALWAYS ‘Mom’s New Boyfriend’ in these cases. When the heck is anyone going to wake up and realize this?

Step-dads, mothers and mother’s boyfriends commit more child neglect and abuse than dads.

Dads are the safest people to put kids with.

Although you have to take into consideration that mothers are less likely to walk away from their children making the odds in favor of them being the most frequent abuser. If more dads were involved, who knows what those stats would say. ;)

That little boy is in Jesus’ arms now, and I hope his father knows that. The two people who did this deserve everything they’re going to get, and then some.

If they couldn’t deal with the little guy, why not just send him back to Dad? It’s incomprehensible.

Poor baby. I feel so very sorry for the dad. Mom could easily have sent him back, or just refused to have him visit in the first place.

One of the worst experiences of my life was being on a jury in a child abuse trial. Mom's boyfriend darned near killed a kid. There was every indication Mom knew things were going on, but she was proven not there at the time.

I'd rather sit on a murder trial jury any old time than another child abuse case. (Not everybody has the same harda** view of things I do).

I'll also never understand how defense attorneys sleep at night nor look at themselves in the mirror.

Because the main intent was to inflict suffering on the biological father? I have read a (mercifully VERY few) True Crime accounts of two legged things who killed their own children in order to get revenge on the other parent/spouse. (We know that was their motive because they left a note (sometimes a suicide note, because they killed themselves afterward) or told the investigating officers that's why they did what they did :Ronald L. Shanabarger remains the most egregious example of this vile perversity of which I'm aware-and thankfully such crimes are rare, though of course only one case is one too many.:-(
