GREENVILLE, Pa. (AP) — Police say a western Pennsylvania boy was nearly starved to death, beaten regularly and resorted to catching insects to eat during brief times he was allowed outside his home.

The Sharon Herald reported ( ) Saturday that the boy's mother and grandparents face multiple charges after the child was found looking like a human skeleton in a Greenville home.

The mother, 28-year-old Mary Rader of Greenville, and the grandparents who also lived in the home, Dennis and Deana Beighley, were charged this week with assault, unlawful restraint of a minor, false imprisonment, endangering a child's welfare and conspiracy. Court records don't list defense attorneys and a home phone couldn't be located.

The paper says the boy weighed 25 pounds when taken to a hospital last month. He's since gained 20 pounds.
