Police say starvation cause of Kenmare boy's death

MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Authorities say the 13-year-old son of a Kenmare woman charged with murder and neglect weighed 21 pounds at the time of his death in January.

State Medical Examiner William Massello says Jessica Jensen's son died from chronic starvation due to untreated juvenile appetite disorder. He listed the manner of death as homicide.

Court documents allege that Jensen told investigators her son had a hormonal growth problem and that his pituitary gland did not function properly. She also allegedly said her son had not seen a doctor for several years.

She could face life in prison without parole if convicted.

Kenmare is in northern North Dakota near the Canadian border.
