Police said Shawnna Huntley allowed her fiance, Sean Sterling, to duct tape her 8 and 14-year-old sons to chairs and lock them in their bedrooms between December 2012 and March 7 in their Powder Springs home. 

They were arrested on March 8. The couple face multiple counts of child cruelty while Sterling faces additional charges of false imprisonment.

According to a police report, one of the victims was tied to a chair with duct tape and the other placed face down on the floor with his hands and feet behind his back, left to urinate in that same space, CBS Atlanta reports.

Sterling was released from the Cobb County Jail on $75,000 bond Saturday and Huntley remains held on $25,000 bond.

Police told CBS Atlanta that they are unable to disclose additional information while the investigation is ongoing.
