The parents of a 27-year-old Calgary man found unresponsive in the family’s Falcon Ridge home in October 2020 are scheduled to appear in court on Thursday morning.
They were charged after their son was found unresponsive in his bedroom. He was transported to hospital and police said he weighed just 43 pounds at the time.
Police said that the man suffered from a medical condition and was completely dependent on his parents for his basic needs.
He is recovering in a long-term care centre and police have said he has since gained weight.
Phillips and Grunewald’s court appearance at the Calgary Courts Centre is scheduled for 9 a.m.
