Man Faces Trial for Duct Taping Daughter, Putting Her in Cage

An Ohio man is facing charges after putting his thirteen-year-old daughter in a dog cage and binding her hands and feet with duct tape, authorities said.

After the girl escaped on January 10, authorities say that James Tapke told her he would electrocute her if she escaped again. He then put a jump pack in front of the cage.

Mr. Tapke was busted when concerned parents called police after his twelve-year-old son posted photos of his sister in the cage on Facebook.

In a court hearing on Friday, Tapke’s lawyer argued that the alarming incident was all just a joke.

He was released on $50,000 bond. The children are staying with their grandparents.
