Tulsa Dad Due in Court in Child Neglect Case
TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- A Tulsa man facing a child neglect charge after police found his 18-month-old daughter locked in a metal dog cage in November is to have a preliminary hearing.
The Associated Press is not naming the father, whose hearing is Wednesday, to protect the identity of the children.
Police also found the man's naked 4-year old daughter outside on a cold afternoon and him asleep in a drug or alcohol "induced stupor" after a neighbor called authorities. A third child was asleep in another room.
The children were placed into the custody of the Department of Human Services.
A man by the same name and the same birth date was given a suspended sentence in August after pleading guilty to possession of a precursor to manufacture methamphetamine, court records indicate.

Also, Oklahoma City police say Western Avenue between SW 164th and SW 134th is closed to all traffic. The closure will continue until utility crews finish installing new power lines.
