Northeast Nebraska couple accused of keeping child in basement charged

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) _ A northeast Nebraska husband and wife accused of locking a special-needs foster child in a basement storage room have been charged in federal court with kidnapping, child abuse and false imprisonment. According to reports, federal indictments against Charles and Krista Parker were unsealed Wednesday. Prosecutors say the 10-year-old boy was found Sept. 15 in the basement room of the Macy home by Omaha Nation Law Enforcement Services officers. Officials say Krista Parker was drunk and asleep in an upstairs bedroom. The Parkers told police they only occasionally locked the boy in the room, but officers found the room covered in human feces and urine. The boy, who had been living with the couple for nine months, told officials that the room served as his bedroom, where he ate his meals and slept on the floor.
