Arrested Nigerian Couple

A Nigerian couple has been arrested in the US for allegedly allowing their teenage son to starve to death and his brotherto become severely emaciated during a religious fast.

Wisconsin prosecutors charged Kehinde Omosebi, 49, and Titilayo Omosebi, 48, with child neglect causing death and child neglect causing great bodily harm.

Both charges arefelonies and carry a combined maximum sentence of 37 years in prison. 

Reedsburg Police Chief Timothy Becker says the father went to the police station Sunday to report the death of his 15-year- old son. 

When police arrived at the family’s home they found the dead teen and an extremely emaciated 11-year-old boy. 

The mother was also found to be emaciated.
Becker said the father told police he was a minister affiliated with Cornerstone Reformation Ministries and that the family
had started a religious fast on July 19. 

Investigators do not believe the father is a minister and made up the name of the
ministry. Becker says police do not believe the father is a minister. 

The younger boy and his mother were brought to the hospital.

The mother refused treatment, citing religious reasons, and was taken to the Sauk County Jail. The 11-year-old is in protective custody at Children’s Hospital
in Madison..
