Child and Elder abuse
A husband and wife who forced their 13-year-old foster daughter to take her grandfather daily meals as he lay dead in an upstairs bedroom were each sentenced to nearly a year in prison on Friday, the authorities said.
An autopsy revealed that he had been dead for weeks.
The parents did not admit knowing that Lombardi was dead but said they made the girl tend to him because she had a good relationship with him and they did not.
But a spokesman for the Union County prosecutor's office, Robert O'Leary, disputed the couple's account. "They had to know . . . the house reeked of death," he said.

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
