A black man who locked his girlfriend’s 10-year-old malnourished daughter in a dingy, dark closet without food or water has been charged with two felonies

Prosecutors filed two felony child endangerment charges against Marcus R. Benson, after they found him hiding in a Kansas City attic. The girl’s mother, Jacole Prince, 29, has been charged with assault, child abuse, and child endangerment. Her daughter, identified in court documents only as LP, weighed a shocking 32 pounds when found, less than half the average weight for a child her age.
