EPSOM, N.H. (FOX 25 / - A baby girl from New Hampshire who was taken into state custody last week has been returned to her parents.

Twenty-four-year-old Jonathan Irish and his girlfriend, 22-year-old Stephanie Taylor, both of Epsom, N.H, were reunited with their daughter Cheyenne Thursday afternoon.

The New Hampshire Department of Children, Youth and families took the baby only hours after she had been born at Concord Hospital.

According to court documents, a social worker believed the baby was in "imminent danger" if left with Irish and Taylor.

Taylor has had two other children from another father removed from her care. According to an affidavit, Irish has a history of violence and anger issues.

The case drew national attention because the state linked Irish to a group called Oath Keepers. The state called the Oath Keepers a "militia group".

The Oath Keepers describe themselves as a non-violent, non-partisan association of people dedicated to supporting and defending the Constitution.

The Oath Keepers have petitioned the state to remove the reference from the court record.
