    Police have charged the parents of a missing 5-year-old Ohio girl after the child's body was found in the family's restaurant. 

    Jackson Township Police say the body of Ashley Zhao was found hidden at Ang's Asian Cuisine in North Canton on Tuesday. 

    Zhao's mother, Mingming Chen, has been charged with murder. Liang Zhao, the girl's father, was charged with complicity to murder and complicity to commit felonious assault. 

    The couple initially reported that Zhao went missing after taking a nap at the back of the restaurant on Monday evening.
