A Tennessee couple behind bars after police discovered the skeletal remains of a young girl in their backyard also held a 15-year-old boy captive in the basement for four years while they kept another two children in wire dog cages, according to an arrest warrant.

Michael Anthony Gray Sr., 63, and his wife, Shirley Ann Gray, 60, were taken into custody on Monday after a boy in their legal care was spotted walking alone along a road near their home, located in a small community called Ten Mile.

The Tennessee Department of Children’s Services launched an investigation that same night and police found the girl’s remains the following day, authorities said. When pressed by investigators, the suspects confessed to burying her in a barn on the property a few years back.

Michael Gray told officers the victim was about 10 when she died in 2017 after spending months locked in the basement. The couple’s oldest child was similarly confined to the partially flooded, unfinished space beneath the home beginning in June 2016, police said.

According to the arrest warrant, the teen had “no contact with anyone outside the basement," and “only given small amounts of food," like white bread and water.
