try a hard reset while unplugged (hold the home and power buttons in together until the apple logo appears or the charging symbol or for upto 30 seconds) then try charging again

I've seen water damaged iphones do this. Not in a long time, its probably been a year or so since i saw it last. The devices will charge a battery with some charge but will do nothing with a dead battery. I wasn't doing any board repair at the time and haven't seen it recently enough to be able to properly chase out the why.

probably damage to the board from using a non-apple charger. the iphone 5 is kind of prissy about that. but hopefully it is just a bad battery or dock connector.

your troubleshooting looks like this:

1.) replace battery

2.) replace dock connector

3.) send out for board repair of charging circuit---which may or may not be feasible depending on whether the charging power ic or the charging logic ic was damaged.

good luck!
