NBC Right Now-- A man charged in a case involving three young children left alone in a cold, filthy house on the Westside has been accused of using a stolen telescope as collateral with a bail bond company. Lake Stevens police recovered the stolen telescope, and the bonding company then declined to extent Mark Dorson's bond into Snohomish County superior court.

Investigators said Dorson and his wife, Amanda Foley, left their children covered in animal feces and without food and water. both were charged last week in Snohomish County with three counts of criminal mistreatment and three counts of abandonment of a dependent person.

Police released initial investigation public on Friday, which shows just how investigators found the home Dorson and Foley left those children in.

Prosecutors said the parents locked three children, aged seven, three and eleven months, in a house to fend for themselves. When found by authorities, the eleven month old was hypothermic.

They also said a nurse who examined that 11-month-old boy said he would have died within a day if he had not been rescued. The three kids are in protective custody.

Foley and Dorson told detectives they left the children in the care of a neighbor, but that neighbor denied that she was asked to babysit

At her first court hearing, Foley said she is now pregnant and is an admitted meth user.
