A husband and wife in Glasgow have been arrested on charges of child abuse and neglect.  Glasgow police got a call Monday afternoon around 6 pm from the T.J. Samson Emergency room in reference to a possible case of abuse.  Upon arrival police saw that the juvenile had several bruises all over his body and had a fracture to his right radius and right ulnar.  The child was severly neglected.  20 year old Dallas Austin and 22 year old  Deanna Austin of Joe Trailer Road were arrested after they admitted to the police that on at least one instance the baby was tied to the crib while sleeping, that they did not take the child for follow up appointments.  Dallas Austin admitted to smacking the child’s hand with two fingers when he ‘got in trouble’.  Deanna Austin told police she knew something was wrong with the baby, but her husband wouldn’t let her in its bedroom when the baby was crying.   Both have been charged with Criminal Abuse 1st degree 12 or under and Wanton Endangerment 1st degree and lodged in the Barren County Jail.  Glasgow police are continuing their investigation at this time.
