The Pineville Police Department said it received information that two adult mothers were using duct tape as a restraint on their children, ages 3 to 10. The families lived in the same house.
Officers said they obtained photographs posted on social networking website Facebook captioned with the phrase, “this how we take care of our kids”.
Jaya Claggett, 29, and Lequanda Brown, 26, are chaged with cruelty to juveniles.
Investigators said the parents would use duct tape to bind the children’s hands and cover their mouths.
