FORT PIERCE, Fla. (AP) - A Fort Pierce couple is accused of forcing a child to bathe, use the bathroom and spend nearly all of her time in the back yard.

St. Lucie County deputies charged 34-year-old man and 31-year-old woman with felony child abuse over the weekend.

Authorities say the couple had three children living with them.

Two appeared to be well-cared for, but a third was dirty and poorly
clothed.

None of the children's ages were reported. All three were taken into custody by the Department of Children and Families.

It's not clear whether the couple has an attorney.
