LAWRENCE, Kan. - A couple accused of tying up and blindfolding some of their children in a Lawrence, Kan., Wal-Mart parking lot were investigated for child neglect last year.
Adolfo Gomez Jr. and his wife, Deborah Gomex, are from Illinois.
The Department of Children and Family Services investigated a possible neglect report last December. The state closed the case in April without any findings.
Last week, police in Lawrence found a 5 and 7-year-old tied up and blindfolded outside the vehicle .
There were three other children ages 12, 13 and 15 inside the SUV as well, but not restrained.
Their SUV broke down on a family trip to Arizona.
The couple will be in court on Thursday.
