FARGO, N.D. — The boyfriend of slain Fargo woman Savanna Greywind said DNA tests have confirmed that he and Greywind are the parents of a newborn girl found in the apartment of two people charged in the case.

Ashton Matheny said that legal custody of the baby hasn’t been awarded, but he believes it will happen soon. He said the baby has been in his care for nearly a week.

Neither Matheny nor a family spokesman responded to messages from The Associated Press. Deputy Police Chief Joseph Anderson said police aren’t releasing further information about the case.
