DALLAS, Ga. — A Georgia couple accused of confining their teenage son to a bedroom for years with little food are scheduled to appear in court.

A bond hearing is set for Paul and Sheila Comer Thursday morning in Paulding County Magistrate Court. The Comers were arrested last month and accused of abusing 18-year-old Mitch Comer. He weighed 87 pounds when he was found in Los Angeles.

The emaciated teen told authorities he had suffered from years of abuse after being taken out of school in the eighth grade.

He told authorities his stepfather, Paul Comer, gave him $200 and a list of homeless shelters before he was put on a bus to Los Angeles on his 18th birthday.

The Comers face charges of false imprisonment and cruelty to children.
