The father and step-mother of an 11-year-old Tennessee boy have been charged with capital murder after the boy was found dead in their home last week.
Justin Raines was found dead in the Horn Lake home which is just a few miles from Memphis, Tennessee. According to the boy's aunt who lives in Chattanooga, the father and step-mother have not allowed family to see him for years. According to a WREG report, a neighbor described the boy as looking so skinny that she believed him to be a 7 or 8 year old.
A postmortem exam has been conducted and hopes to provide answers in the boy's tragic death.
