A husband and wife have been charged in connection with their daughter's death after the wife led police to the site of a decomposed body in a Centreville garage. 

Jason Quate and his wife Elizabeth Quate are charged with concealment of a homicidal death.

Las Vegas police arrested Quate on Thursday after his wife told police that he murdered their youngest daughter. Quate's wife provided an address to St. Clair County police, where they discovered the body of the couple's daughter.

Quate's wife also told police that he was forcing her to work as a prostitute. In Las Vegas Jason Quate was charged with one felony count of sex trafficking an adult, and one felony count of accepting earnings of a prostitute.

An autopsy on their daughter, Alysha, came out as inconclusive. Authorities believe more tests will need to be done to determine the cause of death because the child's body was so badly decomposed.

"I think it goes without saying, the forensic analysis of the victim will take some time, that process has begun," said St. Clair County States Attorney Brendan Kelly.

A burial fund has set up for Alysha Quate through the National Bank of Greenville, Illinois. If you would like to contribute, you can send a donation to The Burial Fund for Alysha Quate, 605 South Third Street, Greenville, Illinois, 62246.
