Couple admit to locking toddlers in filthy room



The children were placed under state care after their parents were arrested. After entering their plea, Stewart Shuman’s attorney, Tim Despotes, asked Clouse to allow the Shumans to visit their children. Despotes said state social services had recommended supervised visits, but the couple needed the judge’s approval.
“They’ve done all the classes they need to do ... to have supervised visits,” Despotes said.
“Let’s wait until sentencing,” Smith said of the request, and Clouse agreed.
The Shumans are scheduled for sentencing at 1:30 p.m. June 14. They both have been free on bond since December.
