A heartless Texas couple will spend decades behind bars for beating, handcuffing and refusing to feed a 12-year-old boy who weighed only 50 pounds when he escaped their mobile home last year, prosecutors announced Thursday. The boy ran from the family’s trailer in May 2019 and told a neighbor that his stepfather, Troy Hall, had chocked him, tied him up, beat him with paint sticks and forced him to wear diapers, authorities said.
