Grandma Charged In Starvation Case

Dover, n.h. (ap) — The mother of a New Hampshire woman convicted of assault for starving a boy is now facing charges in the case.

Prosecutors say Peggy Starr also deprived the boy of food, when he lived in her daughter’s home from 2006 to 2010. Starr’s daughter, 34-year-old Christina Thomas of New Durham, was convicted last month.
