Police question father in death of disabled son
Made a comment to his father that something bad had happened.
Houston — The Associated Press is reporting; a Houston-area couple has been charged in thedeath of their 11-year-old disabled son whose decomposing body was found in a box in the back of his father's sport utility vehicle.
A Pasadena police spokesman says Jeffrey Singer is charged with injury to a child by omission, while Tina Louise Madrid is charged with neglect in the death of Jonathan Singer.
Spokesman Vance Mitchell says both are in custody. No attorneys are listed for them. Mitchell says police made the grisly find about 4 a.m. Sunday after the father drove the SUV to his own father's house in Houston.
Mitchell tells the Houston Chronicle the child's father "made a comment to his father that something bad had
happened." The grandfather called police, who found the remains in a box.
