HUDSONVILLE — The father and mother of a teen with autism, who drowned earlier this year, have been arrested for fraudulently filling his prescriptions in the months after his death.

Timothy Alan Koets, 50, has already been charged in connection to the drowning death of his 16-year-old son Samuel Koets. On March 28, Samuel was found dead in the family's pool. Authorities launched an investigation and uncovered "deplorable" conditions in the teen's basement bedroom. Timothy faces multiple charges, including involuntary manslaughter.
