SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - The parents of toddler Jake Kimbley, whose body was found inside  a septic tank near his family's home, are facing charges.

David and Sabrina Kimbley have been indicted on child endangerment charges.

Both David and Sabrina are charged with 13 counts of child endangerment for the living children.

Each of the 16 total counts are felony charges.

Jake went missing last Tuesday afternoon. He was found last Wednesday morning around 1:30 in his family's septic tank, about 15 feet behind the house in the woods.

The autopsy results on Kimbley have come back twice as pending. More conclusive results are expected in about a month.

CPS took five children living in the Kimbley home into state custody last week. A routine hearing to determine what kind of rights the Kimbley's have to the remaining children will be Thursday afternoon.

The investigation into the capital murder of Jake Kimbley is still underway.
