Trial for dad, stepmom of boy found in basement

Updated: Monday, July 28, 2014

DETROIT (AP) - A trial is scheduled for Sept. 8 to decide whether the father and stepmother of a 12-year-old Detroit boy found in his basement after an 11-day disappearance will lose custody of their children.
A pretrial hearing was held Monday in Wayne County juvenile court for Charlie Bothuell IV and Monique Dillard-Bothuell.
Michigan is seeking to terminate the couple's rights to two other children and the father's rights to Charlie Bothuell V.
The 12-year-old is living with his mother, Africa Shippings. She tells WXYZ-TV he's doing well.
Children ages 4 years and 11 months are living with relatives.
Police found Charlie Bothuell V in the basement of his father's condo on June 25.
Authorities say he was abused and forced to complete intense physical workouts. There are no criminal charges.
