Deputies responded to the home in Jonesborough, Tenn. around 5 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 6. They said they'd gotten a tip that a child was being kept in a cage.
Once inside, they found the 10-year-old child, who has autism, locked in a wooden cage with a mattress. Emergency responders said the cage smelled of urine and feces.

Sparks and Laws are being held on $50,000 bond.
