Winchester police say the children would urinate and defecate inside the room while they were locked inside. The younger children were found with soiled diapers.

In the arrest report, an officer says the 6-year-old soiled a pair of underwear and hid it for two weeks to avoid punishment, but Aaron Allen told police the child got in trouble for hiding it.

Aaron and Dana Allen are also accused of tying the 6-year-old’s hands behind his back with a belt where he urinated on himself.

Both are charged with criminal abuse.
