LA CROSSE, Wis. - The words of a three-year-old girl are chilling. She reportedly told investigators, quote, "Mommy and Daddy hit."

Her parents, a 23 year old man and a 20 year old woman from La Crosse, are now jailed on child neglect charges and are due in court Monday.

According to the Chippewa Herald, police say they learned the girls' parents had fractured the child's hands, limited her to three drinks a day so she wouldn't wet her pants, and gave her 90-minute time-outs without letting her sit.

In addition, the paper reports that a medical exam found old and new fractures consistent with being hit with a blunt object.
