CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A jury has convicted a Cheyenne couple of five counts of child abuse and one count of abusing a vulnerable adult.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1Ya8H9p ) that the jury returned the verdicts Wednesday against Dennis and Emily Larkins.

Emily Larkins is a former chairwoman of a Laramie County organization that helps low-income families and children.

The couples were charged last year after their teenage daughter showed school officials a photograph of a large, dark bruise on her younger brother.

The couple also was accused of abusing four siblings who were their adoptive children, including one who is now an adult.
