MARDELA SPRINGS, MD (WMDT/CNN) – A woman and her girlfriend face child abuse charges and more after they allegedly forced three children to eat dog feces.
Amanda Wright and Besline Jospeh were arrested this week by Maryland State Police.
The list of charges against them includes: child abuse, assault, reckless endangerment, neglect of a minor, stalking, use of a dangerous weapon with intent to injure, false imprisonment and causing ingestion of a bodily fluid. The children involved are 8, 9 and 10.
A police report said the children were beaten on multiple occasion by both suspects. Troopers report that the minors were beaten with hands, extension cords, belts, sticks and other objects. The children sustained bloody noses, bruises and cuts and a stun gun also was recovered from the house where they lived.
Investigators said the children were locked in closets and a basement. They were fed a diet of bread, water and oatmeal in addition to the dog feces.
The case is under investigation.
