TERRE HAUTE, Ind.  — A man charged with neglect in the death of a malnourished 9-year-old boy with cerebral palsy has reached a plea deal in the case.

Under terms of the agreement, 58-year-old Hubert Kraemer will plead guilty to charges of neglect of a dependent resulting in serious bodily injury.

The Kraemers’ adult son Chad Kraemer and his girlfriend Sarah Travioli earlier entered guilty pleas.

Chad Kraemer will be released from prison in 2021 and Sarah Travioli will be released next year.
