Trial To Begin For Mother Accused Of Starving Twins
NEW EAGLE (KDKA) – A Washington County woman accused of starving her 6-year-old twins is set to go on trial today.
Roxanne Taylor was arrested at her New Eagle home last year.
Police said she imprisoned and starved the children. Police found a bug and feces-infested house and there was a lock on the outside of the twins’ bedroom.
However, one of the boys was able to escape. He weighed just 30 pounds when he was found by a Good Samaritan.
The children’s father, Edward Buckholz, pleaded guilty last month in the case.
He now faces a two to four-year sentence.
Taylor is facing a long list of charges, including aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and false imprisonment.
