A woman accused of duct-taping her two children together and leaving them home alone has been charged with child abuse, the sheriff’s office said.
Agla Nadia Vincent, 25, was arrested Monday following a seven-month investigation into whether she left her two boys, then aged 2 and 3, taped to each other while she went to work, said Lt. Annie Smith of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.
In March, a witness heard the children crying and called the police. When military police arrived, they found the children taped in a bedroom with feces and cereal scattered on play mats on the floor, investigators said.
But daycare is soooo expensive!
No mention of a father, naturally. Probably ditched and divorced a long time ago, assuming she bothered to marry him first, and assuming she knows who he is. And assuming they have the same father!
Gotta love that deadpan headline though.

I wish someone would wrap fifty metres of duct-tape around her head – nice and tight.

How in the name of fuck did it take seven months of investigation to solve this case?!
