Dad, Girlfriend Guilty of Torturing, Starving Children Who Looked Like ‘Concentration Camp’ Survivors

California – A jury found a 30-year-old father and his girlfriend guilty Wednesday of torture and child abuse for starving two of his children and physically abusing a third.
Erik Austin Flores and Mariah Rita Sugg, 23, were arrested in June after San Bernardino County social workers were called by employees at the Marinello School of Beauty in Victorville, who saw the emaciated children when both defendants brought them to the school, according to a news release from the San Bernardino District Attorney’s Office.
The kids, ages 4, 6 and 7, were described by school employees as looking like “concentration camp” survivors and “zombies,” the release stated.
Flores and Sugg received food stamps, but starved children and put them through extreme workout sessions as punishment, authorities stated in the release.   More    Up to the minute Crime Stories – Updated 24 hours a day
