A California couple who for years starved a dozen of their children and kept some shackled to beds were sentenced Friday to life in prison. Police in Perris, Calif., arrested David and Louise Turpin in January 2018 after one of their daughters escaped the home and called 911 for help. The Turpins claimed to be homeschooling their children at the house in suburban Los Angeles, where neighbors said they saw no signs of abuse. But when deputies arrived, they found a 22-year-old son chained to a bed and two girls who had just been set free from shackles.
