Two children are in state custody after being bound with shoelaces and duct-taped to the wall, according to Cincinnati Police.
James Howell, 26, and his fiance, Jamie Carver, 30, are facing several kidnapping and child endangering charges.
The couple used shoelaces to restrain Howell’s 4-year-old twins to chairs and gagged the boys with socks, a CPD detective said in court Monday.
Investigators on Sunday found duct tape on the walls and in multiple areas of the pair’s College Hill apartment.
Howell also used a belt to discipline the children, police said.
Howell and Carver are scheduled to appear in court later this month.
