WA Couple Arrested For Adopted Son's Starvation Death

(Vancouver, WA)  --  A Clark County couple is behind bars after being arrested for the starvation death of their adopted child.  Police in California arrested Jesse Franks and Felicia Adams-Franks on Friday for the death of 15-year-old Karreon Franks in a Vancouver, Washington hospital last November.  A judge issued a warrant for their arrest late last month after the Clark County Medical Examiner determined in April that Franks died from starvation and neglect.  Court records say Franks had a rare genetic developmental disorder along with severe autism and blindness.  His parents are being extradited to Clark County to face charges.
