UPDATE: Trial Scheduled To Determine Custody Of Children

A trial has been scheduled for September 8 to decide whether the father and stepmother of a Detroit boy, found in a basement after an 11 day disappearance, will lose custody of their children.

The state is trying to terminate the couple’s rights to two other children, and the father’s rights to the 12-year-old boy.

The children, ages four and 11 months, are living with relatives, while the boy is living with his mother.

Police found the boy in the basement of his father’s condo on June 25.

Police say he was abused, and forced to complete intense physical workouts.
