WICHITA — Detectives are delving deeper into why a man and woman left their 7-month-old son alone in their house for at least an hour Friday night.
The child was taken into protective custody and the parents arrested after police were notified just before 10:30 p.m. on Friday in the 9000 block of West Meadow Park Court.
A neighbor called 911 after noticing the parents leave and not return for an extended period, said Capt. Jeff Weible of the Exploited and Missing Child Unit.
Authorities will present their findings to the Sedgwick County District Attorney's Office, which will then determine what, if any, charges are warranted.
