Parents charged in 10-year-old boy's dehydration death

A Dallas couple has been arrested and charged following the dehydration death of a 10-year-old boy.  Johnathan James was allegedly denied drinking water for five days as punishment for misbehaving.  After Johnathan collapsed, the couple called the fire department for help, but it was already too late.

On Thursday, Dallas police arrested Johnathan's father, Michael James, and his step-mother, Tina Alberson, and charged the pair with injury to a child.  Johnathan's twin brother, who witnessed the entire ordeal but didn't speak out for fear of also being punished, is providing valuable information in the case.

Brooke is joined by Dallas Deputy Chief Craig Miller, who is investigating the case and provides the heart-breaking details that police have uncovered so far in Johnathan's case.
