A central Kentucky couple has pleaded guilty to criminal abuse and admitted to locking their two toddlers
in a feces-covered room.

Stewart M. and Jennifer Shuman, both 23, entered the plea Thursday in Madison Circuit Court.

Stewart Shuman told Judge William Clouse the house where his two children, ages 2 and 3, lived was "unsafe and potentially harmful." Jennifer Shuman made a similar admission.

The Shumans were arrested Sept. 8 when Richmond police officers found their two sons locked in a bedroom. Police say the room was "covered from floor to ceiling with feces" and the door tied shut with a bungee cord.

They are scheduled for sentencing at 1:30 p.m. June 14. Commonwealth's Attorney David Smith told the Richmond Register
he's recommending five year prison sentences.
