Vu Quang Tran and Siobhan Grogan
CHANDLER, Ariz. (AP) - A
Chandler couple accused of child neglect for allegedly keeping their
severely disabled 8-year-old son locked in a bathroom has pleaded not
Maricopa County prosecutors say
35-year-old Vu Quang Tran and 34-year-old Siobhan Grogan entered their
plea Wednesday. Their next scheduled court date is Dec. 6.
Tran and Grogan were arrested
earlier this month. A maintenance man found the boy after the child used
clothes to clog the toilet and flood the bath.
The couple was taken into custody after coming to the police station to bring the boy clothes and special food.
Police say the couple has a
healthy 5-year-old daughter. They told police they regularly left the
boy alone so they could lead a normal life. The boy has been turned over
to state Child Protective Services.
