MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A trial is set to begin this week for a Madison man accused of starving and torturing his teenage daughter.
The man and his wife are accused of locking the girl in the basement and denying her food until she wasted away to 68 pounds. They each face six felonies, including child abuse and neglect. The girl's stepbrother has been accused of sexually assaulting her.
The Associated Press isn't naming any of the defendants to protect the girl's identity.
The father's trial is scheduled to begin with jury selection on Monday.
