A Denver couple is facing multiple felony child abuse counts after authorities found their four children malnourished, surrounded by feces and only able to communicate via grunting sounds.
Parents Wayne Sperling, 66, and Lorinda Bailey, 35, were each charged with four counts of felony child abuse.
Prosectors allege that the children — ages 2, 4, 5 and 6 years old, all boys — were non-verbal and living in an extremely unsanitary home that had an “overwhelming” smell of cat urine and feces. They were so malnourished that the police on the scene couldn’t developmentally distinguish between any of the boys, despite the range in age from 2 to 6 years.
All of the boys were described as developmentally-delayed and none of them were toilet trained.
The police began their investigation of Sperling and Bailey when Bailey took her 2-year-old to St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital near the end of September to be treated for a cut on his forehead.
These worthless scumbags should spend the rest of their lives in prison for neglecting these poor children like this!
