Man on Trial Accused of Starving Kids

DALLAS (AP) - A trial is kicking off in Texas for a man accused of locking his girlfriend's children in a Dallas hotel bathroom for as long as nine months.

The uncle of the three children testified Wednesday. Thirty-six-year-old Abner Santiago says that the then 11-year-old girl and her 10- and 5-year-old half brothers were frail and malnourished when he and police rescued them last summer.

He said that the oldest child walked out of the hotel room and told him: "It's OK, we're safe now. Everything is going to be OK."

Alfred Santiago is charged with injury to a child and continuous sexual abuse in connection with the girl.
