WISE COUNTY, Texas — The Wise County man who was arrested on four counts of child endangerment by criminal negligence last week after two of his children were found locked inside of a dog cage has posted bond and is out of jail, according to online records.
Andrew Fabila, 24, posted bond was $45,030 in total, with money from Blackjack Bail Bonds. His bond was initially set at $60,000.
Paige Harkings, 24, who was also arrested in the incident, remained in jail.
Harkings also faces a charge of aggravated assault. Deputies found Fabila at the scene last week with scratches across his face.
Harking's bond was set at $15,000 for each child endangerment by criminal negligence charge and $15,000 for the aggravated assault for a total of $75,000.
The couple were arrested Feb. 12 after Wise County Sheriff's deputies responded to a domestic violence call near Newark and found Fabila with scratches on his face and found two children locked in a dog kennel together.
Deputies said two other children also showed signs of malnutrition and that food inside the home had been locked up, not reachable by the children. The children were all between the ages of 1-5 years old.
