A father has been charged with repeatedly raping his twin daughters and starving them in an ordeal that lasted for at least 10 years.
Jerry Lee Curry, 51, is accused of chaining his daughters up for 10 years, starving and beating them at their home in Minneapolis, Minnesota, US. The father tortured the girls for years, tied them down with chains and gave them very little to eat. As a result of the long stretches of captivity, one of the daughters suffered gangrene and needed surgery to save her feet.
One of the victims suffered a “largely detached” left ear and she was found to have scars on her forehead, scalp and back. She said that her father had beat her with a bat and a paddle. Their 10-year-old sister said that she was forced to beat her twin sisters with a stick, but she was not found with signs of physical abuse.
