North Mankato couple accused of starving adopted son

Posted: Updated:

A North Mankato couple are facing disturbing charges accusing them of starving their 8-year-old adopted son so severely that his bones protruded and brain atrophied.

Mona and Russell Hauer are facing six felonies apiece, including neglect and malicious punishment of a child after prosecutors claimed they refused to serve the boy any solid food.

The boy weighed less than 35 pounds when he was taken to the hospital.

So far, the Department of Social Services is not commenting on the case or the boy's condition.
