A Wakefield, Nebraska couple has been arrested on child abuse charges.

The Dixon County Sheriff says 54-year-old Patrick and 42-year-old Angela Henderson were taken into custody at their home Wednesday and have each been charged with two counts of felony intentional child abuse.

Court documents say the Hendersons allegedly locked their children in a bedroom of their home and let them out only to use a bathroom.

Their 14-year-old son told an investigator that he and his 9-year-old sister were fed only lunch each day and allowed something to drink only when they finished their food.

He said his mother would choke, kick or hit them if they managed to escape the room.

They were being home-schooled.

The children have been removed from their parent’s custody.

Patrick Henderson was booked into the Dixon County Jail in Ponca.

Angela Henderson was transported to the Dakota County Jail in Dakota City.
