    The article doesn't say what their relationship to the child is. He isn't referred to as their son. Weird.

    I didn't even notice that.

    Let me do some looking around and see if I can find some more articles.

    Child nearly dies after allegedly being forced to eat pepper

    Once the child's condition stabilized, he was interviewed by Alyson Scott of the state Department of Health & Human Resources' Child Protective Services. He told her that "Mommy put pepper" in his mouth, and that he knocked the first spoonful of pepper out of her hand before she forced the second spoonful in his mouth, according to the police report.

    Ruby Memorial's Dr. William D. Patten is quoted in the police report as saying that more than a tablespoonful of pepper was in the boy's stomach and lungs, and he had to be "suctioned multiple times." The police report states that, according to medical professionals, the boy could not have ingested that large of an amount on his own.
    Scott stated Tina Carver told her the boy sometimes eats his own feces. When Scott asked the boy why, he said he and his siblings all wear "diaper/pullups" and have to stay in bed until "it gets really light outside," according to court documents. The boy told Scott that if the children have an "accident" in their diapers, they have to eat "rotten" cheese sandwiches, and afterward are made to take a "cold bath" to clean off the "accident," according to the police report.

    The boy told Scott he consumed his own feces "because he said he is that hungry," and he said that he sucked the urine out of his diaper because he was thirsty, according to court documents.
    This article mentions something about biological children but I can't figure out how many children are living here and who belongs to who.

    The kid refers to the woman as "Mommy": He told her that "Mommy put pepper" in his mouth, and that he knocked the first spoonful of pepper out of her hand before she forced the second spoonful in his mouth, according to the police report.

Tina Marie Carver pleaded not guilty to one count of child abuse resulting in serious bodily injury, a felony. Larry Neil Carver pleaded not guilty to one count of child neglect result in serious bodily injury, a felony.

    True bill indictments were returned on both of them October 28 2013, but I still can't find a trial date.

    Sometimes it's very difficult isn't it~! Both links above your post. . . the newspaper's weather in the upper right corner says "Elkins, WV" and the true bill info letterhead also says WV.

    ** WS members, when you start a thread it is very helpful if you make sure to put 'date' and 'where'. Thanks.
