TULSA (AP) — A preliminary hearing for a Tulsa man charged with child neglect after police found his 18-month-old daughter locked in a metal cage is set for Jan. 30.

Tulsa court records indicate the man has pleaded not guilty to one count of felony child neglect.

The Associated Press is not naming the father to protect the identity of the children.

Police say the man was arrested after officers discovered the child in the cage, his 4-year old daughter naked and outside on a cold November afternoon and him asleep in a drug or alcohol “induced stupor.”

After forcing their way inside, police discovered the toddler was covered in filth and a 3-year-old child was asleep in another room.

The three children were placed in protective custody.
