Dad accused of child neglect ordered to jail

TULSA, Okla. — A Tulsa man accused of locking his toddler in a metal cage was sent to jail by a judge on Thursday. The order revoked the man’s probation on a previous drug conviction.

The father was arrested in November on the felony neglect charge. The Associated Press is not naming the father to protect the child’s identity. He pleaded not guilty, and court records show he has an arraignment scheduled for March 11.

The man’s wife also faces the same charge of child neglect and is due for arraignment in March, according to court records.

The father received a two-year suspended sentence in August after pleading no contest to possessing a precursor to manufacture methamphetamine.

In November, authorities said, police found the man’s 22-month-old daughter locked in the animal crate, a 3-year-old child wandering around naked outside, and another 3-year-old naked and unsupervised.

Records show the man was responsible for caring for all three children, but he was passed out in the house.
