Two children found restrained at Northeast San Antonio home continue recovery
SAN ANTONIO - New details were released Saturday in the shocking discovery of two toddlers who were chained and leashed outside a Northeast Side home in which six unsupervised children were also found.
Porucha Denise Phillips, 34, the pregnant mother of the six children in the home, remained in Bexar County Jail on Saturday in lieu of $150,000 bail. She faces two felony charges on two counts of injury to a child by omission.
When asked if the two children freed showed any signs of torture, Bexar County Sheriff's Office spokesman James Keith said "if you consider a child chained up with metal chain torture, then yes."
Keith said of the two restrained children, deputies found the 2-year-old boy chained to the ground, and the 3-year-old girl tied to a door with a dog leash.
