Racine couple accused of locking adult son in basement, forced to use a bucket for a toilet

RACINE, WI (WTAQ) - A Racine woman and her live-in boyfriend are accused of locking her adult son in her basement, and forcing him to use a bucket as a toilet.

51-year-old Teri Allen and 43-year-old Sarkas Asdigian are both charged with felony counts of subjecting an at-risk individual to abuse.

Teri’s son has Asperger’s syndrome, which is autism-related – plus attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

According to prosecutors, the son’s grandmother asked police to check on him June fourth – and the officer found him sleeping in a locked basement on dirty twin bed with no sheets.

Prosecutors said Allen’s son was confined to the basement for two years except to wash his face-and-hands – and he was occasionally fed through a hole in the wall.

Before that, authorities said the son lived in a locked upstairs bedroom.

Allen is scheduled to make her initial court appearance on Wednesday. Asdigian is due in court July 24th.
