DALLAS, Ga. (AP) — Investigators are traveling out of state to talk to family members in the case of a Georgia man accused of sending his emaciated teenage stepson to Los Angeles.

Cpl. Ashley Henson with the Paulding County sheriff's office says investigators want to learn what may have led to the alleged abuse.

Paul Comer's attorney tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution  his client is cooperating with authorities. Lawyers for him and his wife Sheila say the two plan to plead not guilty. They're charged with false imprisonment and cruelty to children.

Authorities say 18-year-old Mitch Comer told police he was forced to kneel for hours at a time by his stepfather and mother, who are accused of confining the teen in a bedroom for years before the child was sent to Los Angeles.
