The Noah McAdams detention case began last month in Tampa, Florida, where the spotlight is on the fitness of parents Joshua McAdams, 27, and Taylor Bland-Ball, 22.

And on Monday, Judge Thomas Palermo in Florida announced that Noah would remain under the care of his grandmother and continue treatment with chemotherapy.

In April, McAdams and Bland-Ball interrupted his chemotherapy for lymphatic leukemia and fled to Kentucky with the boy.

Last month, McAdams took the position where prosecutors whimpered him about his previous episodes of domestic violence.

McAdams sometimes witnessed and combated in the witness stand, but admitted throwing a toy through a window and breaking it.

In another incident in 2016, McAdams was arrested for a crime in a domestic battery.

The couple argued when the father threw a plastic toy bucket at the Blad-Ball and cut Noah's face when he was a baby, the arrest report said.

McAdams spent three days in prison, but the case was dropped the following year.

On Monday, Judge Palermo said the state has proven that McAdams is an early threat to them because of its anger issues.

The story of the family goes back to April 4, when the young Noah got a shock diagnosis of acute lymphocytic leukemia, a cancer of the blood and bone marrow.

Noah underwent the first two rounds of chemotherapy at the All Children & # 39; s Hospital in St. Petersburg before his parents decided to stop treatment for fear of side effects.

The hospital warned the police when the couple did not bring Noah in for his next chemotherapy treatment on April 22 and refused to attend a follow-up appointment.

By the time the police received a court order to bring Noah into child protection services, McAdams and Bland-Ball had fled the state with their son.

Police warned Noah and eventually found the family on April 29 in Georgetown, Kentucky.

McAdams and Bland-Ball deny that they have fled from Florida and claim that they are on their way to consult a Cincinnati doctor about alternative treatments.

The couple was taken into custody to be charged with neglect of the child.

The little boy's parents claimed that Noah was cancer-free after his first chemotherapy treatments - only 12 days after his first diagnosis. They have the & # 39; recovery & # 39; of the boy attributed to vitamins, an alkaline diet and alternative treatment methods

At the time, Bland-Ball wrote the & # 39; recovery & # 39; from her son to vitamins, an alkaline diet and alternative treatment methods.

Noah had some PICC rule in it, which can be extremely dangerous to remove.

& # 39; [Bland-Ball] testified that she had not had any training on how to remove the PICC line. She explained during the trial that she still felt comfortable removing it because she had watched a YouTube video on how to do it, & # 39; Judge Palermo said in court. & # 39; She just pulled the PICC line from her son's body. & # 39;

The judge recommended both parents to seek mental health assessments.
