MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The attorney for a 41 year old Madison man says he expects prosecutors to re-file some charges against his client.
The jury found Chad Chritton guilty of child neglect late Friday night, but deadlocked on several other issues.
Prosecutors had told the court the defendant had starved his daughter.
She weighed just 68 pounds when she ran away from her family’s home in Madison last year. She told officers she had been subjected to years of physical and sexual abuse.
The trial lasted three weeks.
The girl’s stepmother is scheduled to go to trial next month on similar charges. Her stepbrother will return to court in June to face sexual assault of a child and child abuse charges.
