A 30 year old woman and 35 year old woman will be in a Meadow Lake court Monday facing a combined total of 25 charges after five children were removed from a Meadow Lake home in July 2016.
Neither person is being named to protect the identity of the children, but the woman is charged with five counts of failure to provide necessaries, five counts of forcible confinement and two counts of assault causing bodily harm while the man is charged with five counts of failure to provide necessaries, five counts of forcible confinement, two counts of assault causing bodily harm and one count of aggravated assault.
The children have not been in the care of the two accused since then.
The Ministry of Social Services says the children are being cared for safely.
The two were charged December 1 by Meadow Lake RCMP after an investigation, but were not taken into custody until December 6 in Saskatoon.
