Two parents indicted on abuse charges in Floyd County

Two parents are indicted on abuse charges in Floyd County after police say they found children living in filth.
Prestonsburg police say last month, Shawn and Amber Cordle's five children were covered in rashes and blisters due to the living conditions in their apartment.
Police say two special needs children were kept in a room with string tied to the door to keep them from leaving.
The Cordles are charged with five counts of criminal abuse, five counts of endangering the welfare of a minor, and two counts of unlawful imprisonment.
They pleaded not guilty to the charges.
They are scheduled for a pre-trial conference on January 13th, 2012.
