MADISON (WKOW) -- Charges were filed Thursday in the case of a teenage girl who was apparently starved and tortured.

Authorities charged 40-year-old Chad Chritton and his wife Melinda Drabek-Chritton with several felonies including reckless endangerment. The victim is the 15-year-old daughter of Chad Chritton.
 
The victim's stepbrother, 18-year-old Joshua Drabek was also charged with sexual assault of a child.
 
The 15-year-old victim was found last Friday wandering near her home south of Madison. She is currently in protective custody and undergoing treatment at a local hospital.
 
All three suspects were in court Thursday afternoon.

We'll have more on this case tonight on 27 News at 5, 6 and 10, as well as on our webchannel www.wkow.com.
