Vanity Compton, 29, was charged with injury to a child and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and is being held on bonds totaling $50,000.
Kinchasa Daniels, 34, has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and two counts of injury to a child. His bonds total $60,000.
The arrests stem from a La Marque police and Child Protective Services investigation into allegations of child abuse involving the couple, police Detective Danielle Herman said in an email.
Five children ranging in age from 10 months to 13 years were placed with family members during the course of the two-and-a-half week investigation, Herman said.
