Dearieus L. Kindred, 28, and Kristen D. Kindred, 33, were charged Friday with five counts of neglect of a dependent. Dearieus Kindred faces six additional charges of child molesting.

The girls told police they were locked in a furnace closet on multiple occasions for several hours, sometimes during the summer while the heat was on.
