A New Castle County couple is behind bars today facing charges for holding their 12-year-old son prisoner, locked in a room for three months.
The boy’s parents, 41-year-old Robert Hohn and 39-year-old Shannon Watterson were arrested this week after their malnourished and barefoot son escaped and ran to a neighbor’s house for help Tuesday night.
He was taken to A.I DuPont Hospital for Children for evaluation.
His parents are charged with felony child abuse and four counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
