The Wisconsin parents accused of neglecting their 15-year-old daughter by the hands of her other siblings have been sentenced.

48-year-old Kevin Boon-Bey and 35-year-old Felicia Boon were sentenced on Friday. The mother received a seven-year sentence while the father got six years behind bars.

The couple was convicted in July of agreeing to the torture their children did to their fifteen-year-old that included burning by boiling water, hitting with metal pole and a belt, and restraining with zip ties. The teen was also denied food and water by the other children. According to prosecutors, the parents allowed the abuse.

The reason behind the parents' behavior remains unclear.
