In this Jan. 6, 2011 photo, Pennsylvania State Trooper Timothy Kirsch, left, escorts Tammy Jo Bohon from her home in Point Marion, Pa., to an awaiting patrol car. A mother and father were charged with homicide in the death of their 15-month-old girl who used a feeding tube and was found starved to death in a home filled with animal and human feces, police said. Robert David Dodson, 55, and Tammy Jo Bohon, 35, were charged Thursday after the body of Madison Violet Dodson was found in their Fayette County home. The couple's other seven children who lived in the trash-strewn home, where one room was filled with dirty clothes and toys, were placed in protective custody. Madison had a medical condition that required her to use a gastric feeding tube, though authorities didn't provide details of her illness. An autopsy determined the girl died of starvation and dehydration. less
