TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Prosecutors have charged an Oklahoma man with second-degree murder in the death of his disabled 8-year-old son, who was overcome by carbon monoxide last month.
The Tulsa World reports (http://bit.ly/2p17LKA ) that Noel Cruz, of Tulsa, was charged Monday in the death of Noah Cruz Campbell, who had spinal muscular atrophy and used a wheelchair.
According to prosecutors, Cruz was found, passed out but alive, in a running vehicle in a garage adjoining his home. The door to the family's home was left open, allowing fumes from the garage to pollute the home too.
