Four Malnourished Children - Two Locked in Dog Crate - Found on Texas Property

Children found malnourished and locked inside dog kennel at Texas home

She is the mother of all four children, Akin said.

Andrew Joseph Fabila and Paige Isabow Harkings, both 24, were each charged with four counts of criminal child endangerment, Wise County jail records showed.

Harkings was also charged with aggravated assault, and Fabila was taken to an area hospital to have "numerous lacerations on his face" treated before being jailed, the sheriff's office said in a statement.

Deputies say there was food inside the home, but it was locked up so that the children couldn't reach it.

Inside the barn, deputies found two children locked in a dog kennel who showed signs of malnutrition and two others who also appeared to be malnourished and were only partially clothed and smeared with feces and urine.

A horrific scene unfolded in a small Texas town outside Dallas where two children were found locked inside a dog cage together.

Play Suspended at Pebble Beach National Pro-Am 2019
Casey finished with a birdie that was worth US$152,000 (NZ$225,000) because he wound up alone in second place. This time , he closed with a 71 and lost to Mickelson's 65, which matched the low score of the final round.

On Tuesday, the Wise County Sheriff's Office was sent to the home of Paige Harkings and Andrew Fabila, both 24, on a call about a domestic disturbance.

The children were transported to Cook Children's in Fort Worth for treatment.

According to a WFAA report, authorities in Wise County received a call at about 7:20 a.m. on February 12 about a violent incident involving a man and a woman at a house off County Road 4930 near Newark, located about 30 miles north of Fort Worth. However, they were inside of locked cabinets with no way for the children to unlock them. A sheriff described it as the worst case of child abuse he'd ever seen. A hospital spokeswoman declined to disclose their conditions.

Akin said the suspects, who have not been identified, are facing four counts each of endangering a child.

Neighbor Amber Jester said she wasn't even aware there were any children living there. Officials think they were living at the home for several weeks, KMOV reported. "I guess you never know what people are doing inside of their homes".

Law enforcement and Department of Family and Protective Services staff are still investigating the case, Gonzales said.
