SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A man and two women have been indicted on multiple charges accusing them of injuring children at a San Antonio house, including chaining two in the backyard.

A Bexar (BEAR) County grand jury has indicted 34-year-old Porucha Phillips, 36-year-old Deandre Dorch and 30-year-old Cheryl Reed on felony injury-to-a-child charges after eight children were found unattended in April.

A statement from the district attorney's office says Phillips' six children, ranging in age from 10 months to 10 years, were found inside the house. Reed's two children, ages 3 and 4, were found tied with a dog chain and leash, one by the wrists and another by the ankles. Dorch was with Phillips.
