They said the power was on, but the parents would not run the heat and neighbors said they were shocked.

“It’s horrible, very horrible,” said Alev Atac, a neighbor. “As a father, as a parent, you want the child to be OK.”

Officials said the boy was taken to the hospital.

Lee is in jail on $125,000.
