EPHRATA -- The Grant County sheriff's office says a 2-year-old boy who was found severely malnourished last month at a Moses Lake home remains on life support at a hospital in Spokane.
Detectives are wrapping up an investigation they'll deliver to the county prosecutor for a charging decision.
When emergency responders went to the home May 9 they found the boy's heart had stopped and he had a body temperature of 89 degrees. He weighed less than 10 pounds.
The mother reportedly told a detective she had consulted a naturalist and a Chinese herbal provider for treatment.
Child Protective Services removed four other children from the home.
