Two Radcliff women were indicted on abuse charges after police say punishment for children in their care was cruel.
Mary Elizabeth Hardin, 27, and Pamila S. Matlock, 40, each are charged with two counts of complicity to first-degree criminal abuse.
An indictment is an allegation, not proof of guilt. Defendants are innocent until proven guilty.
According to an arrest citation, Radcliff police officers were dispatched April 23 to a home in the 500 block of Patton Drive to meet Child Protective Services.
