The charges came after deputies were called to the home for a complaint of minor children unclothed and without parental supervision on Sept. 14, the release said.

After further investigation, warrants for their arrest were issued and the two were arrested the next day without incident, the release said.

Their bonds each were set at $5,500 secured, the release said. They’re due in court Nov. 1.
