MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A Madison truck driver and his wife are due back in court this week on allegations they starved and tortured the man’s 15-year-old daughter.

Dane County Circuit Judge Julie Genovese is scheduled on Friday to hear multiple motions from attorneys representing the couple, including requests to dismiss the cases, move the man’s trial out of Dane County and require the girl to undergo a psychological evaluation.

The couple faces a host of charges, including reckless endangerment, child abuse and child neglect. Prosecutors also have charged the woman’s son with sexually assaulting the girl. All three of them have pleaded not guilty.

The girl told police in February her parents forced her to live in the basement and scrounge for food.
