Hearing Set On Parental Rights In Found Boy Case

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (WLNS) - The state wants a court to terminate parental rights of a Detroit man whose 12-year-old son was missing more than a week before police found him in his own basement.

Reportedly a petition in Wayne County juvenile court says Charlie Bothuell V told investigators he was forced to complete workouts, disciplined with a PVC pipe by his father and hit by his stepmother.

A hearing is set for today on whether to terminate Charlie Bothuell IV's parental rights. No one has been charged in the disappearance.

The Associated Press left a message seeking comment Thursday from the elder Bothuell, who has said he didn't abuse his son.

Police found the boy June 25. Attorney Mark Magidson, who represents stepmother Monique Dillard-Bothuell, says she didn't hit the boy.
