Couple Arrested, Accused Of Starving Their Children

A Danville couple is under arrest, accused of starving their children.

Charles and Virginia Holsinger are charged with neglect and criminal abuse.

Police say they got a tip on Friday from the Cabinet of Families and Children. They responded to the home on Seminole Trail in Danville and found two children who showed signs of starvation.

Police say the boys, ages nine and 12, were taken to the hospital where they were found to be malnourished. They're now in state custody.

Neighbors say the family moved to the neighborhood only a few months ago and kept to themselves for the most part.

Both Charles and Virginia Holsinger declined our request for an interview.

They are both being held in the Boyle County Detention Center on $100,000 bond each.
