Abandoned Ontario baby Angelica-Leslie has Three Siblings, Parents in Custody

By KJ Mullins     May 23, 2008 in Crime
The Ontario parents that abandoned Angelica-Leslie in January have three other children, it's been revealed. The 30-year-old parents are now in custody charged with child neglect and assault.
The couple have been married for 6 years and are unemployed. They had moved to Kitchener, Ont. last month.
The three young siblings of the little girl dubbed Angelica-Leslie are now in the custody of Children's Aid Society.
The couple have not been forthcoming about any information on the infant found in a cold stairwell this January. It is believed that she was about eight months old when she was abandoned on one of the coldest days of the year.
The child is, however, in a foster home and is thriving, CAS spokeswoman Melanie Persaud said. "Her foster mom describes her as the perfect 91/2-month-old. She has a healthy appetite, she eats well, she sleeps well, she's talkative, she's babbling, she is mobile."
After a court appearance on Thursday the couple was remanded in custody until their next court date next Thursday.
The mother appears to be pregnant. The father understood the charges, while the mother appeared confused.
It is now alleged that the father was the one driving the car that was seen in video footage when the infant was dropped off at a stairwell on Leslie Ave.
