Bond increased for men accused in child sex abuse case

Posted: Updated:


A judge has increased bond to $1 million cash for two men accused of holding a boy captive for months and sexually abusing him in Huntsville.  One of the men is the boy's father.
Officials say Carl Herold and Charles Dunnavant are charged with sodomy, aggravated child abuse and sexual abuse of a child under 12. The boy is in protective custody.
The boy came to live with the men, who are domestic partners, in April. Authorities allege the boy was kept inside and wasn't enrolled in school.
Investigators say they found hundreds of pornographic images in the home, including some that may be the boy. Herold is charged with producing pornography.
The men have not yet entered pleas.
