RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) - Police in central Kentucky have charged two people with limiting a child’s access to food as punishment for the child wetting the bed.

WLEX-TV in Lexington reported ( ) that 34-year-old Linda Richmond and the child’s father, 37-year-old Julio Valladares of Madison County, were arrested Saturday morning after police say the child had to go to the hospital.

Police say the child had been confined to a chair several hours a day and the two adults were limiting the food the child received due to recent bedwetting.

Police say Richmond lived in the home with the child’s father and continued the “pattern of abuse” when the father worked.

The couple is charged with first-degree criminal abuse of a child 12 or under. Jail records did not list an attorney for either.
