Children in Texas reportedly found locked in dog kennels

Messenger

Two people remain jailed Wednesday morning after deputies found four malnourished children, two of which were locked in a dog kennel, living in deplorable conditions at a home in Wise County.

Deputies discovered two malnourished children crammed into a locked dog cage and two more smeared with feces and urine in a barn in North Texas Tuesday.

Investigators found four children inside the residence, "two of which were locked in a dog crate, one was laying on a blanket, one was laying on a toddler bed", Johnson said.

Deputies said during the investigation, they found that there was food inside the home, but it was locked up so that it couldn't be reached by the children.

A 5-year-old boy and a 4-year-old girl were discovered inside a 3-foot by 3-foot cage, while the two other boys, ages 3 and 1, were discovered inside the home.

Deputies were speaking with a man and a woman, both 24, when they heard children's voices coming from the barn, Akin said.


Paige Isabow Harkings and Andrew Joseph Fabila, who are both 24, have each been charged with four counts of criminal child endangerment.

Sheriff Akin was greeted with a grim discovery as he found four children, all hungry and thirsty. Fabila and Harkings, the mother of the four children, have been jailed without bond after the children were found at their rural home.

Akin didn't describe the state of the children except that they were malnourished.

Harkings is charged with assaulting Fabila, who is shown in a mugshot with cuts all over his face and neck. A hospital spokeswoman declined to disclose their conditions. They were arrested and each charged with four counts of child endangerment. Deputies fed the kids and gave them water before taking them to the hospital, according to the sheriff's office.

According to Sheriff Lane Akin, the man's face was covered in scratches when authorities arrived on the scene.

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