    This story is so disturbing and the fact that the mother is not being charged as well just makes me angry!!! Both parents are responsible for taking care of their children not just one!!! Its very sad that the mother was not concerned about her child to even bother to help take care of him!!! She should be charged just as much as the father!!!
