The parents of two teenage boys in Emerson, Nebraska have been accused of locking cupboards and a refrigerator to keep their sons from eating snacks and sitting on the boys as punishment.

Dakota County Court records say 41-year-old Blaine Busker and his 38-year-old wife, Donella Busker, are both charged with two misdemeanor counts of child abuse.

A court document says the boys were allowed to wash their clothes only once a week and allowed to shower only every other day.

The parents also allegedly padlocked the bathroom that had the home’s only shower.
