  • Police said Allen was killed two months prior to being found in his mother’s house

A mother from Cincinnati, Ohio has been charged with murder after police found her missing 19-year-old son's corpse hidden underneath a pile of clothes in a bedroom inside her home.

A Hamilton County grand jury on Tuesday indicted 39-year-old Kenya Stallworth on one count of murder and one count of felonious assault, FOX19 reported.

Stallworth was arrested on Dec. 5, 2020 after authorities found the corpse of Dominic Allen hidden inside a bedroom in a Westwood house she shared with her husband, 35-year-old Robert Robb. Robb, who is not Allen's father, was arrested alongside Stallworth on charges of abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence.

Court documents revealed Allen died in the bedroom on Sept. 26, 2020, the day he was reportedly last seen. He was identified in March by the Hamilton County Coroner's Office.

Citing a spokesperson for the Hamilton County Prosecuting Attorney's Office, Fox News reported that DNA testing was used to identify Allen's remains.

Police reportedly said the couple attempted to seal the room he was in to stop the smell of Allen's decomposing body from escaping.

Marcus Allen, Dominic's father, told reporters that an officer present at the scene of crime said there were signs his son was tortured.

"The first thing that came to my mind was, ‘What was going through your head when you all did whatever you all did? What happened for all of this to take place like this to the point where you all not only hide him under a pile of dirty clothes, you all sealed him in his bedroom?'" Marcus said.

He later directed a message to the ones responsible for his son's death, saying, "You all will get what you all got coming to you."

"You all didn’t just take away my child. You took away the gift that God gave me. You took away my daughter’s best friend. You took away the nephew of all of my sisters and brothers. You all took him away from all of the people who loved him... and for what?" he added.

Stallworth has been detained at the Hamilton County Justice Center with a $100,000 bond since the day of her arrest. Her lawyer filed a motion to reduce her bond reportedly stating it was too large for the current charges. However, more serious charges could be filed against Stallworth.

A hearing for the bond motion is scheduled for Thursday.

Stallworth is set to appear before court on April 28 for a plea hearing.

No new charges were filed against Robb as of Wednesday .
