Parents Leave Disabled Teen Daughter In A Filthy Room For 2 Years

A suburban parents of nine kids locked up their adult daughter who has severe cognitive disabilities inside a squalid,  filthy room for at least two years,  prosecutors said Saturday.

Cook County Judge Sophia Atcherson on Saturday ordered Charles Hopkins III,  59, and longtime girlfriend,  Marines Y.  Hicks,  38, released without posting bail with electronic monitoring  on several neglect-related charges including endangerment of a child,  criminal neglect of person with disability and abuse or neglect of a physically disabled  person by a caregiver.

Both parents used a locking gate to keep their 18 year-old daughter confined to a bedroom in a home they shared with their other children in the 1800 block of West Vermont Street in Blue Island. The parents are both scheduled to appear before another Judge at the Markham Courthouse next week.
