A Pennsylvania couple is in jail for starving and abusing their three young children.

Brandi and Joshua Weyant have been charged with aggravated assault, false imprisonment and related offenses.

Authorities say they found the couple’s three children “emaciated” and just “days from death” in their home in Halifax Township, just north of Harrisburg.

Police say the couple would lock the children in a room each night with no heat and little food.

Officials say Brandi Weyant blames her husband for the abuse.

Joshua Weyant denies abusing the children, saying he “didn’t want to overfeed” them.

They are both in jail on $1 million bail.
