Parents Charged After Two Month Old Found Malnourished

JERMYN, Pa. -- Two parents in Lackawanna County are facing child endangerment charges.

Police say Austin Flora and Brittany Stillwell of Jermyn had a child who weighed five pounds at birth and at two months still weighed only five pounds.

The two allegedly said the child was fed on demand just like their other two children were when growing up.

According to police, the couple said the child would spit up with four-ounce feedings.

Police say the parents were aware that since the child was four weeks premature, he would need additional care.

The child is in custody of the office of Youth and Family Services.

    Great ‘progressiveness’ encouraging people to have children out of wedlock. No commitment to one another = no commitment to the child either.

      You are living in the 1800s my friend. Catch up to everyone else. A mother is almost always dedicated to her child. Married or not. It has nothing to do with having a child out of wedlock. Animals don’t get married and the raise their offspring just fine

        WTH did I just read? You’re comparing raising children with animals raising their young? Even though you’re sick in the head, you did make a valid point – children raised in one parent homes have a much better chance of growing up to BE animals. 26 out of 27 of the last mass shooters were raised in one parent homes, not to mention the rampant crimes committed by them.

        Number 40 from the 45 declared goals of the Communist Takeover Of America:
        Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

        You, and ‘people’ like you, disgust me.

        No, now a days they don’t marry so they can get more from public assistance. Yes, our hard work asses are paying these pos to sit at home and breed. Take notice this isn’t there first. Scumbags are what they are.

    With all of the cuts Trump has made to the CHIP and SNAP programs, is this s surprise? We are going to see thousands of children and elderly die of being malnourished
