Greece Police have arrested two people they say abused their children.

The prosecutor on the case says Terrance Strong and Nakenya Cooper-Jenkins had been beating a 12 year-old girl and eight-year-old boy for years. News10NBC is told the children were tied up and whipped with electrical cords and belts and that the little girl went to school with a broken wrist and couldn't even carry her books.

Someone alerted the authorities and now the parents are in jail and the children are in foster care.

News10NBC is also told Cooper-Jenkins is also six months pregnant.
