An East Texas couple are accused of locking a young child in a large dog kennel and a closet for extensive periods of time.
Shelby County, Texas, authorities say 29-year-old Matthew McMahon and 36-year-old Randa Askew Faust McMahon, both of Shelbyville, Texas, have been arrested on a charge of injury to a child.
The McMahons are being held in Somervell County, Texas, where sheriff’s deputies arrested them June 2.
Their arrests come as a result of an investigation into allegations that a 4-year-old had been abused, the Shelby County, Texas, Sheriff’s Office reports.
The pair are to be extradited back to Shelby County.
