Cops said that charges were recently filed after an autopsy report from the county’s chief medical examiner confirmed Eliel’s identity – though his cause and manner of death were not yet available, Fox News reported. 

DailyMail.com has reached out to the Virginia Department of Health’s Central Region for more information about the autopsy.

Chesterfield Police Major Mike Louth told WTVR-TV: ‘It’s taken a little bit of time to get us to the point right here just for the fact that this isn’t your typical type of investigation.’

‘We have human remains that had been in a freezer for approximately a year and a half to two years. So you know, we needed to have an autopsy done, and they worked really well with the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner,’ Louth said. 

He added: ‘They brought in some specialists, some forensic anthropologists to help us out on this.’

The couple may face more charges after a final autopsy report from the medical examiner’s office is revealed, according to WWBT. 

DailyMail.com has also reached out to the Chesterfield County Juvenile and Domestic Court clerk’s office for the court records.

Dina Weaver has claimed that she suffers a history of physical and mental abuse, according to court records obtained by WWBT. She also allegedly feared for her safety and that of her brother.  

Court records show Dina’s brother, who was not named by the outlet, had also told cops he was worried his sister was a victim of domestic violence.

In the complaint, Dina’s brother detailed Kassceen’s ‘manipulative’ behavior such as  preventing her from owning a car or cell phone. Kassceen also allegedly did not want Dina talking to her family, WWBT reported. 

Dina’s brother claimed she would talk to him using her work phone and that she allegedly told him on such a phone call on May 3 that Eliel had died two years prior.

She allegedly accused Kassceen of wrapping little Eliel’s body up to place it in the freezer, WWBT reported. 

Dina reportedly did not call police when the boy died because of bruising on his body – though does not mention in the court documents how Eliel died.   

As noted by WWBT, Dina Weaver was also pictured in mugshot with a black eye which she claimed in the court documents were caused by a ‘scuffle’ with Kassceen.

Dina also detailed a time in which Kassceen allegedly tied her up with an electrical cord and burned her with a curling iron, the outlet reported.
