ERIE COUNTY, OH (WOIO) -

An Erie County couple is behind bars and has been charged in the death of their adult son.

The Erie County Sheriff says David Arthur Sr., 54, and his wife Deborah Arthur are both charged with involuntary manslaughter and failing to provide for an impaired person.

Their son David Jr., 33, died Sunday at his home.

The Sheriff's Office say an investigation revealed apparent neglect on the part of the parents.

David Jr. was in a vehicle accident in 1999 and his parents were his caregivers, according to the sheriff. Both were arrested and charged Wednesday afternoon and will be arraigned Friday morning.
