Police Horrified By Living Conditions Of 6 Children - Mom Arrested, Then They See Her Stomach

Cheryl Reed's two young children were discovered tied up in the backyard of a northeast Bexar County home late last year, with both children malnourished and showing signs of physical abuse.

Reed, Porucha Phillips, and Deandre Dorch, have been indicted by a grand jury on charges of injury to a child.

In an interview from jail, Reed noted she does wish she'd done things differently.

"I don't understand why my kids were starved and beaten," Reed commented. "If I had known I was going to be gone that long, I would've taken my children with me."

Reed's three- and four-year-old daughter and son were found chained up in a backyard of a rural home in December.

Reed claims she just made the mistake of trusting her kids with Phillips and Dorch while she was in California involved in a custody battle for her oldest child.

In conversation, Reed refers to Phillips as her "Godsister." She also commented she just can’t understand how people she knows well could cause so much hurt.

“I don't want to talk to them but I want to ask them why. God bless them. I forgive them. They got to answer to God, not to me," she said.



Reed continued to note: "I love them and I'm going to try and do anything that I have to to get them back.”

She also claimed that even while she was out of town, she stayed in touch with her kids almost daily by phone.

"I wasn't just any old mother you know just sitting around with the kids, abusing the kids. I used to go to the park with my kids, spend time with my kids, do things with my kids. I miss all that with my kids," Reed commented.

Note that Reed, Phillips and Dorch are all still incarcerated. If convicted in their upcoming trial, they are each looking at 10 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine.
