The Sherburne County Attorney’s Office has confirmed that the two children found malnourished and living in filthy conditions will be placed in protective custody.
A new survey from Public Opinion Strategies of Washington, D.C. reveals that 14 percent of parents say they’ve left their children alone in a car. For parents of children under three years old, that percentage jumps to 23 percent. The study also found fathers are three times more likely (23 percent) than mothers (8 percent) to leave kids in cars.
Police say two young children are in protective custody after their father fatally shot their mother before killing himself in Apple Valley.
