It’s been one of the most bizarre cases of child abuse in recent history.

A Department of Social Services worker in Union County and her boyfriend, allegedly, handcuffing a child to their front porch with a dead chicken wrapped around his neck.

Today, the boyfriend, Dorian Harper, was at the defendant’s table answering to a number of child abuse charges. Harper was brought in around noon.

There was actually a short recess at lunch where he had to leave the courtroom and returned to his same seat before being called upon. When he faced the judge, he appeared nervous – not knowing whether to sit or sand a couple times.

His next court date has been pushed to April 1 to make room for four to five witnesses to be prepped.

Harper has also been charged with false imprisonment and cruelty to animals. Their home hosted over 100 animals and one North Carolina State Senator said the boy and others in custody were treated as “farm slaves.”

Harper’s girlfriend, Wanda Larson, was scheduled to appear in court today but she was not present. The district attorney’s office informed us that she will have her day in court on Tuesday.
