IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - An Iowa City couple facing drug charges has been accused of tying up a young child and using a stun gun on him.

Court documents show 27-year-old Luis F. Chavez-Preciado and 25-year-old Nasra L. Fernandez-Kury were charged with child endangerment after the boy was found in a closet during a search of their residence last year.

The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports the couple is accused of using a stun gun on the child, whom authorities say appeared to be under the age of five. They're also accused of keeping large quantities of drugs in the presence of Fernandez-Kury's three children.

The couple was arrested Sunday and remains at the Muscatine County Jail. Court records do not list attorneys.
