MADISON (AP) — A husband and wife accused of torturing and starving the man’s teenage daughter are expected to enter pleas this week.

Prosecutors say the Madison couple denied the girl food and forced her to live in the basement. They’ve also accused the girl’s stepbrother of sexually assaulting her.

The husband and wife are scheduled to enter pleas Monday, April 16th to charges of reckless endangerment, child abuse and child neglect. The stepbrother is scheduled to enter pleas to a child abuse charge and two sexual assault counts at the same proceeding.
