Law enforcement officials searched a barn house on the property and found four children ages 5, 4, 3, and 1. The 4- and 5-year-olds were found locked in a padlocked kennel with no food or water, ABC13 reported. Harkings is mother to all four children while Fabila is only father to one, Yahoo added.

“This is at the top of the list of worst cases, as far as children,” Craig Johnson, chief deputy of Wise County Sheriff’s Department said February 12 according to the Independent.

Fabila’s bail is set at $60,000 and Harkings’ at $75,000.
