EL RENO, Okla. (AP) - Canadian County prosecutors have accused a couple of abusing their adopted children and feeding them pet food. John Kluth and Sonja Kluth each face three counts of child abuse and three counts of child neglect.
A jail spokesman said Wednesday the Kluths had been released on bail, but it wasn't known if they had retained an attorney. A telephone listing for the couple was disconnected.
It's alleged in court documents that Sonja Kluth burned, struck and strangled her 15-year-old son, and beat and strangled her 11-year-old son and 9-year-old daughter.
She allegedly confined the boys in an underground shelter and gave them only dog food to eat. The girl was fed cat food.
