Girl says dad forced her to eat cockroaches
MADISON, WI -- A Wisconsin teen has accused her father of choking her and ordering her to eat cockroaches and a dead mouse.
The 15-year-old Madison area girl testified Wednesday during her father's child abuse trial in Dane County that she was starved at home and ordered by her father to also eat other insects.
The girl also said her father put a large plastic bag on her naked body and used duct tape around her waist before she was able to free herself. The Wisconsin State Journal reports the girl said her father choked her at least twice.
The 39-year-old Town of Madison man is charged with child abuse and sexual assault. He's pleaded not guilty. Her mother pleaded no contest last month to six counts of child abuse.
