Mississippi Gran And Boyfriend Arrested For Locking Grandkids, 6 And 9, In Wire Dog Cage

A grandmother in Mississippi and her boyfriend have been arrested for locking two of her grandkids aged just 6 and 9 up in a wire dog cage after they supposedly ‘misbehaved’.

The suspects have been named as Brenda Dennison and her boyfriend Adrian LeSure, both 51, and they stand accused of felony child abuse after they allegedly locked two of her grandchildren in a wire dog cage after they ‘misbehaved’.

The pair were arrested after an administrator at the East Tate Elementary School, which is located in cold water, which is a town intake County, in the southern US state of Mississippi, contacted Child Protective Services after one of the children told a teacher that they were afraid of getting in trouble because they did not want to be locked in the cage at home again.

Four children reportedly lived in the household, with their ages ranging from 4 to 9, and it is understood that the two of the four children who were allegedly locked in the wire dog cage are just 6 and 9 years old. The other two children are reportedly 4 and 5 years old.

The local Sheriff’s office has reportedly stated that deputies found the wire cage and a lock upon searching the home. They also reportedly have evidence that suggests that the kids had been put inside the cage as a form of punishment.

But LeSure’s cousin, named in local media as Anna King, reportedly does not believe the allegation and said: “I don’t think anyone would lock their kids up in the cage.”
