Lesbian couple on trial for starving, chaining daughter to a wall

[Ed. – Apparently not all gay couples make good parents.]

The Salinas, California, couple, accused of starving their three children and chaining one to the wall so she could not get food, will stand trial for multiple child abuse-related charges.

The charges raised against Eraca Dawn Craig, 33, and Christian Jessica DeAnda, 44, are eight counts of child abuse, one charge of child endangerment, a false imprisonment charge, and torture, reports Monterey County Herald.

The aforementioned charges are in connection with the alleged acts performed against their adopted 8-year-old daughter.

The couple also faces two misdemeanor counts of child endangerment concerning their two sons. Their 5-year-old son was adopted, while the youngest, aged 3, is the biological child of one of the women.

The alleged child abuse was discovered when a welfare worker went to visit the couple’s home on March 14, 2014, reports The Daily Mail. The 8-year-old girl was reportedly found covered in bruises by the worker, and it was later revealed that she was chained to the wall “all day, every day.”
