NEW CASTLE — An Edinburg man was charged with endangering children and others.

New Castle police this week charged John R. Helmuth, 39, of Stacie Lane with three counts of endangering the welfare of children and five counts of recklessly endangering others.

Police said that in September, Helmuth had left a loaded handgun unattended on the couch of a Beech Street living room, knowing that two women and three small children lived in the house.
