A South Carolina mom, Sabrina Irene Emerick, 25, and her boyfriend, Earl Kailiala Saladaga, 37, were arrested on Wednesday, February 20, for torturing the woman's kids of age 5 and 7 in "horrific" ways.
The 25-year-old and the 37-year-old abused the children with hot sauce and peppers. According to a statement released by the Greenville Police Department, they had been abusing them since at September 2017.
Lt. Jason Rampey said, "The horrific stories of abuse endured by these children are sickening and reprehensible".
As such, the children have been removed from this abusive environment for their safety and well-being.
One child claimed Earl punished him after he urinated on the couch he was sleeping on. According to the Greenville News report, the 37-year-old rubbed a hot pepper on his genitals and burned it.
Additionally, Earl allegedly rubbed hot sauce all over a kid's face, eyes and mouth which caused him vomiting.
The pair was charged with two counts of cruelty to children and unlawful neglect of a child. Earl was additionally charged with assault as well as a battery of a high and aggravated nature.
Earl and Sabrina were released after posting $25,000 and $10,000 bonds, respectively, on Friday, February 15.
