Montco Couple Charged With Starving Their 6-Year-Old Son

A couple from Montgomery County have been charged for supposedly starving their 6-year-old son after they brought him in for medical attention about three months ago. An investigation was launched when the couple brought their son to CHOP and doctors said it was one of the worst malnutrition cases they’d ever seen. The boy weighed only 29 pounds and apparently looked more like a 3-year-old. The boy is now in protective custody and the parents have been charged with simple and aggravated assault, endangering the welfare of a child and criminal conspiracy. [6 ABC]
