Sandusky, Ohio • A judge has set bond at $250,000 for a northern Ohio couple charged after the man’s disabled 33-year-old son was found dead at their home.

Authorities say they charged the couple after seeing signs of severe medical neglect. Investigators near Sandusky say David Arthur Jr. was covered in bed sores and malnourished when he died last weekend.

David Arthur Sr. and Deborah Arthur were arraigned Friday in Erie County on charges of involuntary manslaughter and failing to provide for a functionally impaired person. A message seeking comment was left with their public defender.

Erie County Sheriff Paul Sigsworth says David Arthur Jr.’s weight dropped from 300 pounds to less than 100 in the three years since he moved from a nursing home into his father’s home.
