Social worker arrested after child cuffed to porch

Posted: Updated:
MONROE, N.C. - A North Carolina social worker is under arrest after a foster child was found cuffed by the ankle to her front porch with a dead chicken hanging from around his neck.
    
Wanda Sue Larson and Dorian Lee Harper are charged with numerous offenses after a sheriff's deputy found the shivering 11-year-old boy. Larson is a supervisor with Union County Department of Social Services. The couple, both 57, adopted four children and were serving as foster parents to the fifth child.
    
Union County Sheriff Eddie Cathey called the incident "shocking." Harper and Larson are charged with intentional child abuse inflicting serious injury, false imprisonment and cruelty to animals. They are in jail awaiting a court appearance set for Monday.
    
The children, aged 8 to 14, have been removed from the home.
