HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – A man and a woman have been charged with cruelty to children after an investigation determined they tortured a 14-year-old boy for six years.

Kenneth Hayes, 39, and Brioni Holmes, 43, both residents of Garden City, were arrested Wednesday and charged with unlawful neglect of a child after an Horry County Police and Social Services investigation determined that from 2005 to 2011, they committed tortuous acts on the child. These acts include starving the boy and then forcing him to eat moldy food, denying him access to school, disallowing him from using the home bathroom, and other harmful acts, according to the arrest warrant.

Probable cause for their arrest was established through disclosures from the victim during interviews and corroborating statements from witnesses, the arrest warrant states.

Hayes and Holmes are currently being held at J. Reuben Long Detention Center.
