Two of four people accused of locking two children in a dog kennel have pleaded no contest to child abuse and false imprisonment charges.
Twenty-two-year-old Lacy Beyer and 26-year-old Bryson Eyten pleaded no contest to the misdemeanor charges on Thursday and were sentenced to a year of probation. In exchange for their pleas, prosecutors dropped more serious felony charges.
Similar charges are pending against 25-year-old Samantha Eyten, who will next appear in court on July 12.
Ashly Clark still faces felony charges of child abuse and false imprisonment. Her next court appearance is Monday.
Police say they found Clark's two boys sleeping in a wired-shut kennel last October inside a filthy home.
