Two suspects in the death of a North Dakota woman who was eight months pregnant when she disappeared will be arraigned Monday afternoon.

According to CBS News, they will face multiple charges, including conspiracy to commit murder.

Police Chief David Todd announced that the body of 22-year-old Savanna Greywind was found Sunday evening by kayakers. She was located in the Red River, which borders North Dakota and Minnesota, "heavily wrapped in plastic and duct tape" and stuck to a log.

Three days earlier, police found a baby in the apartment of Greywind’s neighbors, 32-year-old William Henry Hoehn and a 38-year-old Brooke Lynn Crews. Police believe the newborn girl was Greywind’s.

According to KFGO, DNA testing is conducted to confirm the baby is Greywind’s. Crews told police that Greywind visited her apartment Saturday to help her with a sewing project.

Todd said Greywind was a "victim of a cruel and vicious act of depravity.” Todd is investigating possible scenarios, including theories that Greywind’s child was removed from her womb and that labor was induced.

An abandoned farmstead is also being searched in Minnesota, after suspicious items found there by property owners indicated it might be a related crime scene.

"Our sincere condolences and thoughts and prayers go out to the Greywind family as they suffer through this horrible loss," Todd said. "I'll tell you our hearts are heavy as we mourn the loss of this young lady."
