BEND, Ore. (AP) -- An anger management counselor and her adult son are accused of abusing the woman's three foster kids.
The Bulletin reports 46-year-old Ogilvia Pineda and 23-year-old Kyle Macias were arraigned Monday in Jefferson County Circuit Court on felony child abuse charges.
They are currently being held at the Jefferson County Jail in Madras.
Pineda's lawyer declined to comment. Macias' lawyer could not be reached.
Court documents filed this week say Pineda's foster children told investigators Macias would force them to eat food from the trash. A 7-year-old boy said Macias regularly punched him in the stomach, sometimes causing him to vomit.
The children also accuse Macias of forcing socks into their mouths, causing their throats to bleed.
Court documents state the children say Pineda also abused them.
