Pair facing charges for torturing young children

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A Cincinnati pair is behind bars after police say they abused and tortured two children.

According to court documents, Todd Napier, 22, admitted to using his knuckles, a belt and his hands to physically punish Candy Johnson's 2 and 5-year-old children on more than one occasion.

Officers say the children were injured so badly that they were hospitalized.

The children's mother, Candy Johnson, 28, was arrested on Tuesday. According to police reports, Johnson did knowingly torture and abuse her two children.

The court records also show Napier is being accused to kicking Johnson in the face and hitting her in the legs with a broom stick.

Napier and Johnson are charged with two counts of Endangering Children. Napier faces an additional count of domestic violence.

Hamilton County Department of Job and Family Services tells FOX19 that both the children have been placed in foster care.

A spokesperson from that agency tells our reporter that there have been two previous calls regarding abuse from the two; one in 2006, one in 2012. Both were found to be unsubstantiated.

They are currently being held at the Hamilton County Jail. Her bond is set for $1 million. His bond is set at $210,00.
