The diaper-clad boy was found crying in the basement of a home. He says he was bound with tape.
His mother, 26-year-old Lori Gardner, and stepfather, 31-year-old Brian Sleboda, were ordered taken to Lackawanna County Prison on Tuesday in lieu of $60,000 bail each. The (Scranton) Times-Tribune (http://bit.ly/qRP9Me) says the two said nothing as they were escorted out of the Scranton police headquarters.
Neighbors heard the boy crying last week and called police. Officials say the bug-infested home has been condemned.
Authorities say in a criminal complaint the child told officers he often was locked in the basement and told there were ghosts there.
