6-year-old boy found in shed with hands tied says he's slept there since he's been out of school [View all]

A woman and her boyfriend in Texas are facing charges after police found her 6-year-old grandson tied up in a shed, according to reports. Dallas Police officers were called to 53-year-old Esmeralda Lira's home Sunday night after a caller told them a child was being kept inside a shed in their backyard.

Lira told the police that her grandson was with his mother, but a man pointed authorities to the shed.

The boy was found inside with his hands tied behind his back. He told authorities that he has been forced to sleep inside the shed since school has been out, according to reports.

Her boyfriend told police that he was being kept in the shed as punishment repeatedly for the past two weeks for attempting to steal food to eat.

Lira and her boyfriend, Jose Balderas, both face felony charges of child endangerment.
