HUBERT, N.C.A U.S. Marine assigned to Camp Lejuene and his wife were arrested and charged with abusing and torturing their five children. 

Lance Corporal Larry Anderson and his wife Janet Lynn Anderson were arrested Monday.  The pair appeared in court this morning. 

Corporal Anderson is assigned to the 2nd Battalion 9th Marine 2nd Marine Division at Camp Lejuene.

Police reports between August 2010 and July 2011 show the Anderson’s used torture-type methods to punish their five children. They’re also charged with restricting food.

Additionally, Onslow County Sheriff said the Anderson’s duct taped the children’s mouths and did not bathe them regularly, which caused them to develop sores.

The children ranged in age from 18 months to 6 years old.

Neighbors who knew the couple were in disbelief.

Investigators told Nine on Your Side that doctors who treated the children said one of them One was so badly malnourished that he would have likely died within the week.

We’ve been told that the Onslow County Department of Social Services has taken custody of the children.
