A Warren mother and a man who lives with her have each been charged with child endangering.

Thirty-one-year-old Canchata Allgood was arrested Tuesday and arraigned Wednesday morning. She is being held on a $100,000 bond and is not allowed to have contact with any children.

Thirty-two-year-old James Jethroe faces the same charge and a warrant has been issued for his arrest, but as of 2 o'clock, Wednesday officials said he was not yet in custody.

Allgood was arrested after five children were removed from a home on Austin Avenue. Police were called to the home after reports of a child possibly being kept in the basement and rarely fed.

Reports of the incident say cameras were allegedly set up to send alerts if the child were to come upstairs.

Officials described the 5-year-old boy as just skin and bones, emaciated with bruising and injuries from head-to-toe.

Warren Detective Nick Carney did not comment on all the details of the case but said what they found was "horrible."

"When I seen him, I didn't even recognize him as my grandson," said Donald Allgood, who is the grandfather of the children in the home.

The child's father said he had been fighting for about a month to see his son but Canchata Allgood always had an excuse on why he couldn't.

The child is currently in the care of Akron Children's Hospital.
