Couple arrested after police found children in a box

Posted: Updated:
INDIANA (WFIE) -

A new development in the tale of a couple stopped for driving through Indiana with five of their children in the back of a box truck.

They've been offered a plea deal of one count of neglect.

Indiana State Police say David and Rebecca Detjen were pulled over in Henry County.

In November, after police discovered the children and 18 cats in the back of the truck in near freezing conditions, the Pennsylvania couple told police they were moving to California to start a new life.
