COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- A former Colorado Springs city councilman and his wife have been cited for child neglect after police found their 13-year-old son naked and living in a home littered with human waste.
Charles Wingate and his wife, Sharon Starkey, were reported to police by a neighbor.
According to the Colorado Springs Gazette, the boy was living with live and dead rodents.
Wingate disputes the police reports and says the child was well cared for.
