BURKE COUNTY, N.C. (WBTV) – A mother and father have been charged after deputies say they were involved in abusing twin three-month-old boys in Burke County.
According to deputies, Nicholas Brandon Clark, 20, and Brittany Nichole Hefner, 24, were both charged with child abuse in the case.
One of the boys is in serious condition as a result of the abuse, deputies said. The abuse was reportedly discovered after the children were taken to a hospital for treatment.
Doctors at the hospital then called law enforcement.
Hefner was arrested Monday and charged with felony child abuse. Online jail records show Clark was arrested in mid-September and is being held on the same charge.
Both are expected in court on Tuesday and are being held on $75,000 bonds.
