WILKES-BARRE -- A Luzerne County jury will begin deliberations in the trial of a Plymouth couple charged with neglecting and sexually abusing a now-14-year-old boy.

Defense attorney Andrew Katsock and Assistant District Attorney Jenny Roberts presented their closing arguments to a jury this morning.

Judge Tina Polachek Gartley will now instruct the jury on the law they are to apply to the total of 13 charges the couple faces before the jury is sent to deliberate.

The couple were charged in August 2010 after a the boy was found inside their Gould Street, Plymouth, home in filthy inadequate conditions, according to the criminal complaint.

Luzerne County detectives said in arrest records the boy was never enrolled in school, never taught how to use utensils to eat and did not know how to bathe or use a toothbrush.
