A Georgia couple forced their 15-year-old adopted daughter to wear a shock collar around her neck and often kept her in a chicken coop, authorities say.
Investigators found the collar in the Butler, Ga., home of Diana and Samuel Franklin, who were arrested Tuesday morning.
The girl told Georgia Bureau of Investigation agents that her parents shocked her with the collar several times using a remote key fob.
"The child basically said that there were just a series of fairly severe, what can be described as punishments, for various things that the child allegedly did — some as simple as not doing homework and then others like taking food," the GBI's Wayne Smith told WSB radio in Atlanta.
The shock collar, usually used on dogs, has been sent for DNA testing said law enforcement officials. It matches the description that the teen gave to agents, according to reports.
