Couple Charged With Abusing Mentally Disabled Man

Shocking allegations of a couple accused of abusing a mentally disabled man by locking him in a closet and not feeding him.

Police arrested 25-year old Christopher Shoopman and 19-year old Dawn Schrock in Pulaski County.

They've been on the run for months, after the abuse allegations of Shrock's brother surfaced in Pennsylvania.

Police think they've been hiding in Somerset because they have family there.

Schrock's brother, who is more than six feet tall, only weighed 118 pounds when found late last year.
