Court document: Boy sent to basement without food

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) - A court record obtained by a newspaper says a 12-year-old Detroit boy who was missing for more than a week before he was discovered in his own basement told investigators his stepmother sent him there.

The petition filed Friday in Wayne County juvenile court by Children's Protective Services was obtained by the Detroit Free Press.

According to the newspaper, the document says Charlie Bothuell V was placed in the basement behind boxes and totes by his stepmother, Monique Dillard-Bothuell, and told "not to come out, no matter what he hears."

Charlie was found Wednesday in the bowels of the multiple-unit condo building where he lived with Dillard-Bothuell and his father, Charlie Bothuell IV.
