An attorney for the Vermilion couple filed the motion in Erie County Common Pleas Court this week. Thirty-three-year-old James Brothers and 25-year-old Adrienne Bartholomew are each being held on $280,000 bond.
The Sandusky Register reports that their attorney will ask that they be released on house arrest with electronic monitoring.
The couple’s youngest son, 18-month-old Isaac Brothers-Bartholomew, died Nov. 6 of malnutrition and dehydration.
They have also been charged with providing poor care to five other children, most of whom were malnourished and undersized when taken from their home last fall.
