DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — A Davenport man whose wife's intellectually disabled daughter was always locked in a bedroom has been given 10 years in prison.
The Quad-City Times reports that 56-year-old Eugene Harris was sentenced Friday. He'd been convicted of neglect of a dependent person, but the jury couldn't reach an agreement on a charge of dependent adult abuse. It's since been dropped. Harris' wife, 48-year-old Kimberly Williams, has pleaded not guilty to the same charges. Her trial is scheduled to begin March 4.Authorities say officers sent to the home May 22 to check a report about a domestic disturbance were led by Harris to a bedroom locked from the outside. That's where they found Williams' daughter. Nearby were soiled adult diapers, a mattress on the floor and a few other items.
