PENSACOLA, Fla. – A Florida couple is in jail and faces child neglect charges after authorities say they left a minor living alone in a trailer without furniture and often without food.
The Pensacola couple-- Jennifer Nichols, 34, and Joshua Sanders, 32 -- were arrested on Nov. 30.
A witness told Escambia County sheriff's deputies that the couple began renting the trailer in September and she realized at some point that the child was living in it alone.
A police report didn't list the boy's age. He told investigators he had occasionally been able to contact the couple and they would bring a small amount of money and a meal or two, but he said he often couldn't reach them.
The couple was being held in jail Tuesday and jail records didn't indicate if they have a lawyer.
