Prosecutors say a Virginia boy found dead in a septic tank was left alone with his infant sister on the morning he disappeared.
Pulaski County Commonwealth Attorney Mike Fleenor says Ashley White and Paul Thomas they left Noah Thomas, 5, and his 6 month-old sister at home while White drove Thomas to his job on March 22.
The information was made known during a bond hearing for Paul Thomas on Wednesday.
The boys parents face felony child abuse and neglect charges.
The parents first told investigators the children were with them and that Noah disappeared once they returned home.
The body of Noah Thomas was found March 26 in a septic tank at the family’s property.
