EAGLE, Idaho (AP) - A southwestern Idaho couple has been charged with felony sexual abuse after police said they molested two girls at a group home for homeless and at-risk children.

The Ada County Sheriff’s office says Michael Paul Magill and Jennifer Nicole Magill were arrested Friday. The two worked as house parents at the Children’s Christian Ranch in Eagle, a private group home for kids up to age 18. The sheriff’s office says the two victims in the case, a 14-year-old girl and a 17-year-old girl, lived at the home under the Magills’ care.

The Magills are each charged with two felonies - sexual battery of a minor and sexual abuse of a minor. According to online court records, the Magills have not yet entered a plea. It was not immediately known if they had an attorney.

An administrator at Christian Children’s Ranch said the couple was no longer employed by the organization.
