Washington couple's child-abuse trial under way
Wash. couple's child-abuse trial begins; adopted son says he wasn't fed, had to eat dog food
By The Associated Press

KELSO, Wash. (AP) The trial of a Washington state couple accused of mistreating five adopted children has begun with a 14-year-old boy testifying that his parents hardly fed him so he resorted to eating dog food.

The boy weighed only 50 pounds half the normal weight for his age when he and four adopted sisters were placed in protective custody in March of last year. Authorities say the Longview couple's four older biological children were well fed.

The Daily News reports (http://is.gd/F46085 ) the boy who testified Monday also said he wasn't allowed to use the bathroom at night so he urinated in a cup. If his parents found the cup, they made him drink it.

Jeffrey and Rebecca Trebilcock deny criminal mistreatment charges in the trial in Cowlitz County Superior Court in Kelso.
