Tulsa Dad Due In Court In Child Neglect Case

TULSA, Okla. —

A Tulsa man facing a child  neglect charge after police found his 18-month-old daughter locked in a metal  dog cage in November is to have a preliminary hearing.

The Associated Press is  not naming the father, whose hearing is Wednesday, to protect the identity of  the children.

Police also found the  man’s naked 4-year old daughter outside on a cold afternoon and him asleep in a  drug or alcohol “induced stupor” after a neighbor called authorities. A third  child was asleep in another room.

The children were placed  into the custody of the Department of Human Services.

A man by the same name and  the same birth date was given a suspended sentence in August after pleading  guilty to possession of a precursor to manufacture methamphetamine, court  records indicate.
