NORTH NEWTON, Kan. (AP) — A south-central Kansas couple has been arrested on suspicion of abusing three children they adopted from an orphanage in Peru. Harvey County Sheriff T. Walton said in a news release that their North Newton parents were arrested Tuesday after a court hearing focused on the welfare of the children. The two 11-year-olds and a 14-year-old were placed in protective custody last week because of concerns about their treatment. The release said the two younger children were "severely malnourished" and had multiple bruises. A medical examination also revealed that they had current broken bones as well as past broken bones that were healing. The parents are jailed on suspicion of child abuse, aggravated child endangerment and aggravated battery. They haven't been formally charged.
