AIKEN CTY, S.C.---An Aiken County couple is in jail, accused of using a cattle prod to shock two children.
Officers say Dana Smith and Kip Smith repeatedly used the device in June and July. In March, they say Kip Smith also struck one of the victims with a cane across the buttocks and legs.
The victims are 12- and 14-year-old boys. They now live with relatives.
Both Smiths are charged with unlawful neglect by a legal custodian.
