A Waseca couple facing child abuse charges have had their parental rights terminated. DeAnna and Jeffrey Musolf have been ordered to forfeit the rights to 4 adopted special needs children for allegedly engaging in parenting practices that are physically and emotionally harmful. They are accused of confining 2 of their adopted daughters to dark, bare bedrooms for extended periods, as well as denying them sufficient nourishment and clothing and not allowing them into the bathroom for 2 days. They lost custody of those girls last spring, and face criminal charges of felony neglect and endangerment involving the girls. They have now also lost parental rights to their 4 other adopted children. The Musolfs also have four biological children. A pretrial hearing on the criminal charges has been scheduled for November 8th.
