Child Neglect

Bay County sheriff's deputies arrested a Youngstown couple Saturday for child neglect.

Forty-four-year-old Carl Pitts and his wife, 35-year-old Janel, allegedly left their 14-year-old son home alone for two days without electricity, running water, fresh food or access to medical care, because the home has no phone service.

The couple is being charged with child neglect for failure to provide care, supervision and mental health.
