A Conway couple was arrested Wednesday after police say marks from what appeared to be a belt were found on two children in their care.
Daniel Hill Sr., 32, and Sherry Hill, 26, were each charged with unlawful neglect of child or helpless person by legal custodian after Horry County Police learned of linear bruises and welts covering two childrens’ legs, buttocks, abdomen, chest and arm. The incidents reportedly occurred at the beginning of March, according to a police report dated March 10. It is unclear why the arrests were made nearly five months later.
The children were reportedly taken to a family member’s home.
Both were released Wednesday on $5,000 bond each.
