ANNVILLE (AP) — A Lebanon County man and his fiancee starved and beat the man’s 12-year-old boy and kept him locked in a room for years until he died in his own filth. 42-year-old Scott Schollenberger Jr. and 35-year-old Kimberly Maurer, both of Annville, are each charged with homicide and child endangerment. Both are being held without bail. Authorities say Maxwell Schollenberger’s body was found May 26 in deplorable conditions at their home in the 1st block of South White Oak Street. They say the boy was rarely seen even by his siblings who lived in the same house. Maurer told investigators she was the boy’s caregiver.
