A couple have been released on bail after locking their young daughter in a cage without food or water.

Aimee Friz (36) and Alan Friz (57) of Huntingburg Indiana, were arrested last Wednesday at their home after police responded to reports of a disorderly child, the Dubois County Herald reported.

The child told police that she was locked into the cage for weeks.

Authorities allegedly found the cage, "a closet area of a bedroom that was found to have been converted into a lockable cage," according to the Herald.

The young girl also claimed that her father Alan "sexually touched her".

Alan, who works as a dentist, was arrested for child neglect.

Mum Aimee, who claims she is eight months pregnant, reportedly said her daughter said she would kill her, and also kill her unborn child.

Both parents were released on bail and their children were removed from their care.
