  • 4 Malnourished Children Found In Dog Cage At A Home Near Fort Worth TX

Sheriff's deputies discovered four malnourished children, including two locked inside a dog cage, when they responded to a domestic disturbance at a Northeast Texas home.

Deputies responded to a "shop-type" outbuilding near Rhome, which lies about 25 miles northwest of Fort Worth, after receiving a call around 7:20 a.m. reporting "some sort of physical altercation or argument", Johnson said. They went inside and found two children locked in the kennel and two others who were malnourished and covered in feces.

The chief deputy said deputies found a refrigerator in the makeshift residence with three straps on it, positioned so the children couldn't access it.

The children are ages five, four, three and one.

Paige Isabow Harkings and Andrew Joseph Fabila, who are both 24, were each charged with four counts of criminal child endangerment and were being held in the Wise County Jail.

Sheriff Akin was greeted with a grim discovery as he found four children, all hungry and thirsty.

A horrific scene unfolded in a small Texas town outside Dallas where two children were found locked inside a dog cage together.

Harkings is also charged with one aggravated assault count.

The children were taken to Cook Children's Medical Center in Fort Worth, but a hospital spokeswoman declined to disclose their conditions.

The children are 1, 3, 4 and 5 years old.

"All of them were filthy, covered in fecal material and appeared to be in a state of neglect", Wise County Sheriff Lane Akin said. They were taken to a hospital for evaluation. The man had cuts to his face.

Andrew Joseph Fabila is the father to one of the children, Harkings is the mother to all four of the children. Officials think they were living at the home for several weeks, KMOV reported. Akin called it the worst case of child abuse he has seen in his 44-year career.

Marissa Gonzales, a spokeswoman for the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, said the agency has had contact with the family before, but at a different location.
