ENID couple accused of child neglect

Updated:

ENID, Okla. (AP) _ An Enid couple is charged with child neglect after authorities say they left their 14-year-old daughter home alone in a filthy house for more than a week.

Janice E. Emanuel and Clifford A. Caldwell could face a maximum punishment of life in prison if they are convicted of the felony.

Emanuel's daughter told Enid police her mother and stepfather had left her alone for eight days to complete a truck driving job.

The teen told police her parents did not give her money for food and she had to get food from local churches.

The girl said her house had been dirty for more than two years and kept getting worse, according to court documents.
