ST. PETER, Minn. (AP) — A man and woman in southern Minnesota are accused of dropping off a 5-year-old boy in the woods as punishment for wetting himself.

Officials say 42-year-old Lynda Michel and 32-year-old Gregory Wilson were charged Friday in Nicollet County District Court with child neglect.

The article goes on to state the following:

Authorities say the boy was found on Aug. 28 walking south of St. Peter, a community roughly 55 miles (90 kilometers) southwest of Minneapolis. He was crying and wet from rain when a motorist spotted him. He told authorities he had been dropped off because he had been “naughty.”

The couple told authorities they turned around after a short distance, but could not find him.
