NC woman accused of starving, beating children

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012

LILLINGTON, N.C. (AP) – Authorities say a North Carolina woman starved, beat and regularly locked three adopted her children in a room over more than a year while her ex-husband worked overseas.

The Harnett County Sheriff’s Office said Monday that 37-year-old Leslie Tiesler of Cameron was charged after a long investigation involving the county’s social services agency.

Tiesler was arrested last week and charged with three counts of child abuse. She is jailed with bail set at $1 million. An attorney listed on jail records as representing Tiesler did not return a call from The Associated Press seeking comment.

Tiesler had four adopted and one biological child. A 14-year-old and two 13-year-olds who were adopted told officers they were starved, beaten with a wooden spoon, and locked away in rooms.

NC court candidate backed by outside group, too

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – The North Carolina Supreme Court candidate criticizing how independent committees are spending money to back his rival with commercials and billboards is being supported by an outside group too.

North Carolina Citizens for Protecting Our Schools is listed as paying for a mailer and mobile phone ad that praises Court of Appeals Judge Sam Ervin IV. He and Associate Justice Paul Newby are running for the state’s highest court.

A commercial paid for by Ervin last week accused groups supporting Newby of trying to “buy a seat” on the court. Ervin has said he’s worried outside money is threatening the court’s independence.

Ervin campaign manager Mike Davis said Ervin is concerned about any outside group, even the one supporting him.

Independent groups aren’t allowed to coordinate activities with candidates.
