Erie County couple charged in adult son's death

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

An Erie County couple is behind bars, charged in the death of their adult son.

The Erie County Sheriff says 54-year-old David Arthur Senior and his wife Deborah Arthur are both charged with involuntary manslaughter, and failing to provide for an impaired person.

Their 33-year-old son David Junior died Sunday at his home.

The Sheriff's Office say an investigation revealed apparent neglect on the part of the parents.

David Junior was in a vehicle accident in 1999 and his parents were his caregivers, according to the sheriff. Both were arrested and charged Wednesday afternoon and will be arraigned Friday morning.
