A 6-year-old boy who was locked in a closet and deprived of food weighed just 18 pounds when he died in March, an autopsy has found.

Deshaun Martinez’s parents, Elizabeth Archibeque and Anthony Martinez, allegedly admitted to police that they kept Deshaun and his 7-year-old brother in a closet in their Flagstaff, Arizona, apartment for 16 hours a day for a month — and gave them little to eat.

An autopsy determined that Deshaun died of starvation and listed the manner of death as a homicide.

Deshaun weighed 34 pounds at age 4 but dropped to 27 pounds a year later. He was just 18 pounds when he died — the same weight he was at age 1.

The parents agreed to participate in voluntary in-home services, and when they were completed in July 2013 the case was closed, the statement said.
