California couple sentenced to life in prison in severe child abuse case

A Southern California couple was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison on Friday after the pair pleaded guilty to abuse charges.

They stemmed from grim, headline-making accusations they beat, starved and shackled their 13 children in the family's home, prosecutors said.

David Turpin, 57, and his wife Louise Turpin, 50, had agreed to be sentenced to 25 years to life in prison as part of an agreement with Riverside County prosecutors that saw them plead guilty in February to torture, child abuse and false imprisonment charges.
