A northern Ohio couple are accused of neglect in the death of their disabled 33-year-old son, who investigators say was malnourished and covered in bed sores.
They're being held at the Erie County jail. A message was left at the jail inquiring whether the couple has an attorney.
Erie County deputies went to the Arthurs' home Sunday after the man's biological son, David Arthur Jr., was found dead. The Sandusky Register reports Deborah Arthur is his stepmother.
Chief Deputy Jared Oliver tells the newspaper David Arthur Jr. was malnourished and it appeared he'd been in bed for a long time.
