CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A Cleveland couple accused of beating and hog-tying one of their kids went before a judge Monday.

Jason Dunikowski and Andreia Huffman both pleaded not guilty to abuse and a host of other charges.

Prosecutors say their 8-year old child was tied to a table with a broken nose.

The judge, disgusted and direct, set Huffman's bond at a 100 thousand dollars.

Huffman's husband Dunikowski tried to say he wasn't around when his son was beaten but  Judge Michael Ryan didn't buy his excuse.

The couple has nine children and the judge forbid any contact with them even if another social agency gives the green light.
