Parents Accused of Leaving Son in SUV outside Bar 5 Hours
CHAMBERLAIN, S.D. (AP) — A Chamberlain couple is accused of leaving their 4-year-old son in a sport utility vehicle outside a bar for about five hours.
The Daily Republic reports that 31-year-old Shane Eagle Feather and his 25-year-old wife, Talisa Fleury, each face a felony child abuse charge that carries a maximum punishment of 10 years in prison.
It was not immediately clear if they had an attorney, and a telephone listing for them could not be found.
Authorities say law officers discovered the child about 2:00 AM on August 29 after responding to a report of a domestic assault involving Eagle Feather, Fleury and Fleury's brother.
The boy was not harmed.
