A married couple in Orange County who spent their days in an unsanitary mobile home playing World of Warcraft have been charged with child abuse after two girls in their care were found malnourished and locked in the home, prosecutors said Friday.
Lester Louis Huffmire and his wife, Petra Huffmire, both 41, have been charged with two felony counts of child abuse and two misdemeanor counts of false imprisonment, according to a statement from the Orange County district attorney's office.
If convicted, prosecutors said, the pair could each face up to seven years in prison.
Lester Huffmire is being held on $100,000 bail, and prosecutors asked that the same amount be set for Petra Huffmire when the two were arraigned Friday, according to the statement.
The pair lived in Anaheim with the two girls, ages 10 and 5, who were related to them. Prosecutors did not describe how they were related.
