2 children found locked in dog kennel in north Texas, reports say

Children found malnourished and locked inside dog kennel at Texas home

A fight between the two is what brought deputies to the rural home, and the man had cuts to his face.

Akin said there was plenty of food in the home, but it was under lock and key.

Two of the old children were locked in a 90 x 90 centimetre cage, while two younger children were found outside the cage but only partially clothed and smeared with faeces and urine.

"I've not worked [a case] where children are locked inside a dog kennel, and I find that absolutely disgusting", he said.
All of them were said to be malnourished and covered in waste.

WFAA reported that deputies noticed feces scattered throughout the house.

Neighbors told KXAS they noticed the couple begin to use the building a couple of weeks earlier, but had no idea that there were children living inside. Deputies fed the kids and gave them water before taking them to the hospital, according to the sheriff's office.

Paige Isabow Harkings and Andrew Joseph Fabila, who are both 24, were each charged with four counts of criminal child endangerment and were being held in the Wise County Jail. They were all taken to Cook Children's Medical Center in Fort Worth.

Akin says the children's mother and a man at the home have been arrested on four counts each of child endangerment.

Daryl Justen Head and Laura Elizabeth Cheatham.

Officials said Cheatham and Head were charged with five counts of endangering the welfare of a child creating substantial risk as well as three counts of kidnapping, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The three boys and one girl ranged in age from 1 to 5, and didn't say much when police arrived at the home near Rhome, authorities said.

"I've seen some pretty nasty things, but nothing this deplorable", said St. Francois Sheriff Daniel Bullock, KMOV-TV reported. "This is the kind of thing that happens somewhere else, not here".

She said the children were being evaluated at the hospital and for the time being were not in state custody. They appeared to be in relatively good health.
