Biological mom asks for custody of son 'locked in closet'

HOUSTON - Two parents are facing child abuse charges in a disturbing case accusing them of locking their son in a closet and not feeding him.

Deputies found the 5-year-old boy after they responded to a disturbance call at a home in Spring on March 27.

Investigators arrested the boy's father and stepmother, Brad and Tammi Bleimeyer, and charged them with endangering a child.

The boy's biological mother, Windy Hall spoke out for the first time Tuesday. She was in court for a hearing regarding the boy's custody.

"It was the most amazing feeling. It felt like giving birth again, it was amazing and it's a bond that have never should have been broken," said Hall.

Officials say the boy is being treated at Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital for bumps, bruises and severe malnutrition.

"They put a padlock on there to keep him in there, and that is no way to treat my grandson," said the boy's grandmother, Jaqueline Hall.

Tammi Bleimeyer is pregnant and the mother to other six children. She is not the biological mother to the victim.  

Children's Protective Services is working to get custody of all of the couple's children.

The biological mother of the boy met with a judge Tuesday and asked for custody of the child.

A custody hearing will be set for late April to determine who gets custody of the boy.

"To know that it was done to him at the hands of his own father, its just something that nightmares are made out of," said Hall.
