Parents arrested in connection to carbon monoxide death of disabled Tulsa boy

TULSA, OK (KTUL) -- Arrests have been made in the case of a boy who died last month from carbon monoxide poisoning. His parents are now being charged in connection with his death.

Noah Cruz, 8, died March 24 after being found unresponsive at his family's home. His father, Noel Cruz, was hospitalized but recovered. According to police, a vehicle was running in an attached garage and a door leading into the home was open. Noah Cruz suffered from spinal muscular atrophy and was confined to a wheelchair.

Police say the boy's mother was out of town and couldn't reach the family, so her sister went to check on them and found them both unconscious.

Noel Cruz is charged with second-degree murder and possession of methamphetamine. The boy's mother, Zanetta Campbell, is charged with permitting child neglect.

Cruz told investigators his son was playing video games while he went into the garage, started his vehicle and began drinking. Police found methamphetamine in the vehicle and Cruz later tested positive for amphetamine while being treated at an area hospital.

According to court documents, Campbell was aware of Cruz's history of drug abuse and domestic violence.
