Prosecutors filed felony child-neglect charges Thursday against the parents of a mentally-disabled boy who died in an accidental shooting.
Tulsa police said Douglas Allen and Amber Jordan were at home when their 6-year-old son, Jeffery Allen, shot himself in the face Jan. 21. He died the next day.

His three siblings were taken from the home in the 800 block of North Troost Avenue and put in protective custody, police said.
