Bronx parents left 5-year-old alone in feces-stained apartment - NY Daily News
The flies and the neighbors were still buzzing Saturday after a 5-year-old boy was abandoned all night
by his parents inside their vermin-riddled Bronx apartment. Mom Charlotte Lewis, 49, and dad Wilfred Lewis, 59, were arrested for leaving the child home alone - except for the cockroaches, rats and flies.
"Authorities found his mother at Montefiore Medical Center where she works as a nurse. Prosecutors said she is enrolled in a masters program at New York University."
