Delaware teacher faces child welfare charges
LAUREL, Del. (AP) - February 11, 2012 (WPVI) -- A special education teacher in Delaware is accused of tying the hands of two students behind their backs.
The News Journal of Wilmington reports that Nyazina Custis, a teacher at North Laurel Elementary School in Laurel, turned herself in on Friday and faces charges of unlawful imprisonment and endangering the welfare of a child.
Police say the 61-year-old Custis tied the two fourth-grade students' hands behind their backs with neckties on Wednesday after they apparently failed to follow instructions. A police spokesman says Custis, who was reported by another teacher, has been suspended from work pending an investigation.
No phone listing for Custis could immediately be found Saturday.
