DALLAS, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia couple accused of confining their teenage son to a bedroom for years with little food is set to appear in court.

Paulding County Court administrator Frank Baker says Paul and Sheila Comer, the stepfather and mother of Mitch Comer, were set for a court appearance Thursday.

The couple has been in custody since mid-September, after 18-year-old Mitch Comer was found wandering a Los Angeles bus station Sept. 11 and told police he had suffered years of abuse. Charges against the Comers include cruelty to children and false imprisonment.
