Father charged in case of severely malnourished Utah boy


February 15, 2017

SALT LAKE CITY — The father of a 12-year-old Utah boy who was found severely malnourished in a feces-strewn bathroom was charged with child abuse on Tuesday, a month after the child's mother was charged with locking him in the room for about a year.

The abuse was discovered after the 40-year-old man brought the boy to a hospital. But prosecutors say he recklessly endangered his son by failing to act before the child's weight dropped to just 30 pounds and delayed getting him medical care for hours after discovering him.
