Couple Found Guilty in Cheyenne Abuse Case
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A jury has convicted a Cheyenne couple of five counts of child abuse and one count of abusing a vulnerable adult.
The jury returned the verdicts Wednesday against Dennis and Emily Larkins.
Emily Larkins is a former chairwoman of a Laramie County organization that helps low-income families and children.
The couples were charged last year after their teenage daughter showed school officials a photograph of a large, dark bruise on her younger brother.
The couple also was accused of abusing four siblings who were their adoptive children, including one who is now an adult.
