Three starving children — including one who was chained to the floor to prevent her from getting food — were found last month in the squalid home of a Northern California couple, authorities said.
All three — two boys and a girl — were taken into protective custody, and one was hospitalized, Monterey County Sheriff Scott Miller said Friday.
Authorities discovered them in the Salinas, Calif., home on March 14 after two of the young people missed appointments, according to several published reports.
