    Parents Jailed in Starving of 3 S.C. Kids
    July 15th, 2006



    LYMAN, S.C. (AP) - A couple was jailed on felony charges after police discovered their three adopted sons were severely malnourished, including a 5-year-old boy who weighed less than 20 pounds.An 8-year-old brother weighed less than 40 pounds and a 7-year-old brother weighed about 32 pounds when police found them Thursday. The boys also were treated for bruises, scratches, burns and head lice. Two of the boys told officers they were tied up to be kept from food in the mobile home.Dennis McCurry, 30, and Molly McCurry, 29, were each charged with three counts of intentional infliction of great bodily injury upon a child. If convicted of the felony, each faces a minimum 20 year sentence.A fourth child, Molly McCurry's 10-year-old biological daughter, was found to have head lice but was not malnourished, police said.
    "It appeared that mom, dad and daughter ate one way, and the boys ate another way," Spartanburg County sheriff's Sgt. Kevin Bobo said.According to the incident report, the couple told officers their family "had been dealing with a stomach virus that had caused the weight loss." During his bail hearing, Dennis McCurry told Magistrate Judge John Poole that he had lost 10 pounds.The couple was denied bail and the children are in protective custody.The boys are Molly McCurry's biological nephews, but she and her husband adopted them. The boys had lived with the McCurrys since 2003.

    If there is not a special place in He!! for such as these, then I highly recommend it.

    I am so sickened when these stories come out. IMO state laws need to be revamped for there to ever be justice served. Being sent to prison is not enough! If you starve a child then you also should be starved!
    I hope these brothers will be getting the physical and mental care they will need and that they won't become more victims of the system.

    If convicted, they only each face a minimum 20 year sentence??? I agree w/ OB, they need to know what it's like to starve. They should get tied up away from food just like those precious little boys were. How dare they make those children suffer so. I pray the boys get the proper love, care & nutrition they so rightfully deserve.

    Tis - and what about the school? At least two of the boys should have been attending. I suppose they were "home schooled". :mad:

    Well it is summer time and school has been out for at least 1 1/2 months, so I kind of think that the school wouldn't ahve been able to know this was happening.

    Why does this seem to be so common - tying kids up to stop them from foraging for food?!? Why not just lock the bedroom door? They must just get a sadistic thrill out of restraining the kids :mad:

    Good girl! You did the right thing. Too often in these cases the favored children join in with the scapegoating of the other children and become sadistic themselves... This girl must have a strong moral character to testify against her parents like that.

    I tried to find an update, a statement of how the boys are doing now but can't find anything.

    Prayers they are thriving.
