DEERFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Police have requested charges against a Livingston County couple following accusations their 16-year-old adopted son was mentally and emotionally abused in part by being isolated in a basement.

Prosecutor William Vailliencourt tells the Livingston Daily Press & Argus (https://bit.ly/1EfV14f ) he’s reviewing a request from police seeking a warrant against the couple for child abuse.

Court documents filed in juvenile court say the 43-year-olds isolated the boy in the basement of the family’s Deerfield Township home. They say protective services workers were told the boy only could get access to the main living area of the home from other family members.

Documents say the boy also was forced to urinate and defecate in a camper toilet. The boy has been placed in foster care amid the ongoing investigation.
