Report: Woman & Live-In Girlfriend Accused Of Locking Up Kids And Forcing Them To Eat Dog Feces
Three children in Maryland were beaten and reportedly locked up and fed on bread and water, oatmeal and sometimes dog feces, authorities revealed on Wednesday.

Ugh.

29-year-old Amanda R. Wright and 25-year-old Besline Joseph (both of Mardela Springs) were arrested Wednesday and were charged with multiple counts of child abuse, involving the children in their custody.

Investigators determined the three victims, ages 8, 9 and 10, lived with Wright and her live-in girlfriend, Joseph.

The investigation has revealed that since late spring or early summer of 2017, the three children endured physical beatings on a number of occasions from both suspects, police say. The beatings are believed to have been inflicted with hands, extension cords, belts, sticks and other objects.


The children sustained bloody noses, bruises and cuts, police note. The investigation also revealed Wright and Joseph assaulted the children multiple times with an electronic control device.

Ugh.


Investigators also discovered that the children were reportedly locked in closets and a basement, and were threatened with death if they told anyone about the abuse, it seems.

How horrific!

Wright and Joseph have been charged with three counts each of first-degree child abuse, second-degree child abuse, first-degree assault, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, neglect of a minor, stalking, use of a dangerous weapon with intent to injure, false imprisonment and one count each of causing ingestion of a bodily fluid, preventing/interfering with report of suspected child abuse or neglect, and conspiracy to commit first degree child abuse.


On Friday, Maryland State Police received information on allegations of child abuse involving the suspects.


The Maryland State Police Criminal Enforcement Division immediately started an investigation, in cooperation with Child Protective Services personnel assigned to the Wicomico Child Advocacy Center, police said.

Based on the allegations, Child Protective Services officials removed the three children from the home the night the investigation began. They have asked state police not to release additional details that may identify the children.


So sad.


Okay, so now you need something to lighten the mood, right?

Kim Kardashian West is racking up the publicity for her new perfumes (or something) because she sent promotional packages of new products to her haters including Blac Chyna, Wendy Williams, Taylor Swift and more. That’s petty and great.
