Amanda Wright, 29, and Besline Joseph, 25, have been LOCKED UP and charged with an unimaginable crime - against the couple's THREE CHILDREN. Police claim that the two women forced the kids to eat dog feces.
Amanda and Besline were each charged with three counts each of first-degree child abuse, second-degree child abuse, first-degree assault, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, neglect of a minor, stalking, use of a dangerous weapon with intent to injure, false imprisonment, and one count each of causing ingestion of a bodily fluid, preventing/interfering with report of suspected child abuse or neglect, and conspiracy to commit first-degree child abuse.
The couple cared for three children, ages 8, 9 and 10.
Investigators claim that since late spring of 2017, the three children received “physical beatings on multiple occasions” from both women.
They were reportedly beat with extension cords, belts, sticks and other objects, and the children had bloody noses, bruises, and cuts as a result of these beatings.
Police believe that the innocent children were also locked in closets and a basement, and fed only bread, water and oatmeal.
Amanda and Besline are also accused of forcing the children to eat dog feces and threatened to kill them if they told anyone about what was happening.
The two women were arrested at their Wicomico County home Wednesday after an investigation by Maryland State Police.
