A child told a teacher they were being locked in a cage for getting into trouble and now two adults face charges, police said.
Brenda Dennison, 51, and Adrian LeSure were both arrested in connection to the case out of Tate County, Mississippi. They were each charged with two counts of felonious child abuse, according to Fox 13.
Dennison is the grandmother to the victims and LeSure is her boyfriend.
One child told their elementary school teacher that they didn’t want to get in trouble again because they’d be locked in a cage at home, according to Fox 13.
When deputies from the Tate County Sheriff’s Office went to the home in Coldwater, Mississippi, they found a wire cage with a locking device, according to the report. There was also evidence that children had been kept in the cage.
The duo was arrested this week.
