Authorities arrested a Union County Department of Social Services worker and a Monroe man Friday night after an 11-year-old boy was found handcuffed to the front porch of a home with a dead chicken tied around his neck, investigators said.

The child also had a dead chicken hanging around his neck, and appeared to be shivering, the deputy said.
