Balitang America reports that American couple Jeff and Sandra Weller are facing charges of assault, unlawful imprisonment, and criminal mistreatment because of the way they treated their adopted children, 16-year-old Filipino twins (a boy and a girl).

 

According to the report, the twins are among six children living at the Wellers’ home in Washington. For some reason, they were isolated and locked up in a separate room that had no door knob and was rigged with an alarm to prevent them from leaving. Court documents revealed that electricity to the room had also been cut off.

 

The Wellers also restricted the twins’ access to food, keeping all food under lock and key and letting them eat only small amounts, usually once a day.

 

Balitang America also pointed out: "After an incident where the boy ’stole’ food, Jeff Weller punished the girl first by beating her 20 times with a wooden stick. Then, while she was on her hands and knees, he strangled her."

 

The twins were also subjected to racist remarks. In fact, the couple explained their emaciated state as part of their being Filipino.

 

Fortunately, the twins reportedly slipped a note to an unnamed person who called the authorities. The twins are now in protective custody. The Wellers are scheduled to be arraigned on October 27.
