Gloucester County authorities say they unearthed the remains of a child outside a home where they earlier found a malnourished little girl in a makeshift cage.
The sheriff's office says a girl who appears to be 5 or 6 years old was found Thursday night in a crib that had been modified with a piece of wood to keep her confined. The child was in guarded condition at a Norfolk hospital Friday. A month-old boy was found unharmed.
Their parents, 29-year-old Brian Gore and 25-year-old Shannon Gore, were charged with felony child abuse. Shannon Gore also was charged with attempted capital murder.
The Daily Press reports that deputies returned to the Gore home Friday night and found the remains while digging under and around a shed.
